Patrik Antonius launches new shot clock for reside tournaments
The game has come a lengthy way in the respect that not too lengthy ago shot clocks seemed like a fad but now they are mainstream. Are they swift sufficient, nevertheless? With most of them getting just a flat 30 seconds per decision.
Patrik Antonius has created a new shot clock that is being showcased this weekend at the Patrik Antonius Poker Challenge in Tallinn this weekend.
The new clock is ten seconds preflop, 20 seconds if there is a preflop three-bet and 20 seconds on the flop, turn and river. They also have 15 timebanks every single of 20 seconds, which is considerably far more than the usual 5 you get in most MTTs.
New advanced shot clock is in use for PAPC higher roller tournaments. I hope that every person who cares about poker will understand how considerably good influence this will have for tournament poker. Let’s start applying this in all the tournaments! pic.twitter.com/WRyPxjTWq7

The principal goal of the clock is to stop stalling and establish a quickly playing rhythm. 10 seconds may well not look considerably but there is a sound logic to it, at this point in the game most people know their preflop opening and flatting/three-betting ranges automatically. As Patrik suggests it is the post flop and three-bet decisions that take the most time, which is why the additional timebanks are in use.
The early response appears to be very positive and if you want to see the shot clock in action, the PAPC is getting live streamed this weekend.
