LAUNCHES NEW �TIME TOURNEY� GAMES
LONDON, UK � October 19 � PokerStars today launched a brand new, fast-paced and exciting tournament format called Time Tourneys. In contrast to traditional multi-table tournaments, which continue until one player has all the chips, Time Tourneys last for a set period of time. Once the time limit is reached, the entire prize pool is divided among the remaining players based on the players� stack sizes.
The new tourney format is available to play at a wide range of buy-ins, with games starting from just $1, and run around the clock. The length of Time Tourneys range between 15 minutes and 180 minutes, so there�s a game to suit everyone. Players can fit in a tourney over breakfast, in a lunch hour, or over the course of an evening.
Team PokerStars Pro, Bertrand �ElkY� Grospellier, said: �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. 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!�
Free Time Tourneys ticket!
To mark the launch of Time Tourneys, 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.
Players can find Time Tourneys in the PokerStars client by clicking on the �Tourney� tab and looking for tournaments marked with a stopwatch icon. Players can also search for them by typing �Time� into the Tourney Filter.
New Saturday Line-Up tournament
As part of the Time Tourneys launch, from October 22 a new event will be added to the Saturday Line-Up. The Saturday Countdown � a two-hour Time Tourney featuring a $22 buy-in � will run every week at 13.00 ET with a $10,000 guarantee. However, for the following Saturday � October 29 � all the Saturday Line-Up guarantees will be doubled!
