The recent debate surrounding the value of shot clocks has prompted the World Poker Tour (WPT) to consider implementing them next season.
Being keen to first gauge the interest of players from around the world before they make any changes, the tournament organisation recently asked players to give their opinion during the WPT LAPC. Marvin Rettenmaier was one of those players asked for his opinion and after voting against the use of shot clocks he's posted a picture of the polling form for the world to see. Listed on the card was a brief outline of how the WPT would use a shot clock if it were introduced:Players will have 30 seconds to act on his or her hand.If a player does not act on his or her hand in 30 seconds, the hand will be declared dead.Each player will be given time buttons that will add an additional 60 seconds to the clock, and time buttons can be used individually or in combination.A simple "yes" or "no" was required from the players and for those answering "yes" a follow-up question regarding the best to use shot clocks - In the money, Final three tables, Final table only - was asked. According to the WPT's President, Adam Pliska, they are "continuing to explore ways to improve the overall tournament experience". He went on to say that player feedback in the matter was extremely important to the company and so far he's been "really impressed with the amount of participation from the players and the thoughtfulness of the comments [they have] received."
