Recently the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL hosted the World Poker Tour’s “Tournament of Champions” which was a $15k buy-in event exclusively for players who’ve won WPT main events. While the shot clock has been tried before in the occasional preliminary tournament and super high roller event, this marked the first time it has been used such a prestigious tournament and has led to a lot of discussion about the idea and implementation in poker circles.
Each dealer was given a tablet with a timer and players were given 30 seconds to act on their hand regardless of what street the decision was being made on. In addition to these 30 seconds to act, each player received 5 “time chips” which could be used to extend the amount of time they were given to act for tough decisions. Players who made the televised final table were reset to a total of 4 time chips whether they’d used their previous 5 or not. If you weren’t facing a bet and time ran out, your hand was automatically checked. If you were facing a bet and ran out of time, your hand was declared dead.
We like to give acknowledgement to our big online winners each week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, because, well, who doesn’t like a big jackpot?
But there’s something to be said for the steadier wins that happen every day at our online sites as well. Take the Daily $10K Guaranteed tournament at BorgataPoker.com (and our partners at PartyPoker). That’s a daily tournament that paid six Borgata online winners almost $3,000 in jackpot winnings for May 9 through May 15.
That’s better than $18,000 in daily tournament wins for just one of our daily tournaments.
