PokerStars launches Time Tourney events

Thursday, 20 October 2011

PokerStars is never shy about finding ways to spice up the action at its tournament tables and has come up trumps again with its new Time Tourneys games.

Instead of playing on until one player has all the chips, Time Tourneys, as the name suggests, run for a specified amount of time and when the clock stops the prize pool is split between the remaining players depending on their chip stack.

Time Tourneys range from 15 minutes to 180 minutes with buy-ins starting from just $1. PokerStars is giving everyone the chance to try the new format for free, by offering a tournament ticket worth $5.50* to all players who make a deposit of $30 or more using the code ‘TIME’ between October 19-28.

Time Tourneys have been incorporated into the PokerStars Saturday line-up in the form of the Saturday Countdown – a two-hour Time Tourney featuring a $22 buy-in which features a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000.

“Time Tourneys are going to be so much fun. I often want to play a tournament but don’t have hours to spare, so these are just perfect.” said Team PokerStars pro ElkY. “I think Time Tourneys are also going to be intense, because as the clock ticks down there’s going to be even more action. I can’t wait to get playing them!”

Join ElkY at the PokerStars tables with a first deposit bonus of up to $500. Sign up here.
