Has anyone tried out the new Time Tourneys at Pokerstars? What did you think of them?
I'm going to try them in the next day or two - as soon as I get some peace from the kids!!
From the PokerStars email :
"Time Tourneys are finally here and we're giving you an exclusive deposit bonus to get you started! Simply deposit $30 or more with the code ‘TIME’ before 04:59 UK time on October 29 and we’ll credit your account with a free $5.50 Time Tourney ticket!
Our brand-new online Time Tourneys each run for a set period of time only (min: 15 mins, max: 180 mins). When time is up, prizes are paid out based on the size of each players stack. Buy-ins are available starting from just $1!"
Sounds great!! I'm very keen to try them out.
I think those are valid points Ronin. I think all these new variants, like Rush Poker which Full Tilt had, have to be treated not so much as traditional poker games but as a completely different type of game.
The strategy has to be different and the risk/reward structure if also different than the poker we all know.
I've nothing against these games, in fact I like trying out new inventions. Sometimes a little change is good. However, at the end of the day, I always end up back playing the traditional poker games.
