PokerStars Introduces Fixed Time Tournaments

PokerStars Time TournamentsThe new PokerStars Time Tournaments should attract players who want the certainty of knowing how long the tournament will last. Many players have had the bitter-sweet experience of running deep in a tournament on a Sunday night, only to feel exhausted at work on Monday morning.

Free $5.50 Ticket

From now until October 28th, any deposit of $30 or over will earn you a free $5.50 ticket for a Time Tournament when you use the bonus code TIME.

Tournament Structure

The tournament structures vary depending on the time allocated, from 15 minutes to 3 hours. The $22 Saturday Countdown is a new feature on PokerStars tournament schedule with a $10,000 guarantee which will last for two hours with 15 minute blind levels. Players start with 3,000 chips.

Double Guarantee Next Saturday

On October 29th, the guarantee will be doubled to $20,000 presenting a great opportunity to try out the new format. There is no late registration allowed, so be on time!

Prize Payouts

When the tournament ends the players remaining receive their buy-in back (minus the fee) and the remaining prize pool is split based on chip count.

Strategy

The name of the game is survival, so avoid early confrontations unless you are very strong. Maximizing your ROI in these will be about exploiting other players’ survival instincts. Normal ICM considerations won’t come into play so profitability is going to be heavily dependent on accumulating chips shortly before the end of the tournament. Every opportunity should be taken to steal the blinds as the time runs out, but your all-in calling range should be tight.
