Is 10 seconds sufficient to make your preflop choice? That is what Patrik Antonius thinks needs to be the new commonplace in live poker.
The sport has come a great distance within the respect that not too way back shot clocks appeared like a fad however now they’re mainstream. Are they fast sufficient, nevertheless? With most of them being only a flat 30 seconds per choice.
Patrik Antonius has developed a new shot clock that’s being showcased this weekend on the Patrik Antonius Poker Challenge in Tallinn this weekend.
The new clock is 10 seconds preflop, 20 seconds if there’s a preflop 3-bet and 20 seconds on the flop, flip and river. They even have 15 timebanks every of 20 seconds, which is rather more than the standard 5 you get in most MTTs.
New superior shot clock is in use for PAPC excessive curler tournaments. I hope that everybody who cares about poker will perceive how a lot constructive impression this may have for match poker. Let’s begin making use of this in all of the tournaments! pic.twitter.com/WRyPxjTWq7

The principal goal of the clock is to cease stalling and set up a quick taking part in rhythm. 10 seconds won’t appear a lot however there’s a sound logic to it, at this level within the sport most individuals know their preflop opening and flatting/3-betting ranges mechanically. As Patrik suggests it’s the put up flop and 3-bet choices that take probably the most time, which is why the extra timebanks are in use.
The early response appears to be fairly constructive and if you wish to see the shot clock in motion, the PAPC is being live streamed this weekend.
