Synchronized Breaks


Synchronized Breaks:

With synchronized breaks you can take a five minute break each hour from all multi-table tournaments! Black Chip Poker has synchronized breaks on each and every tournament they offer so that play pauses on all of them 55 minutes past every hour. This feature is ideal for multi-tabling action as it ensures that players won’t miss a hand in one tournament while on break from another.

Black Chip Poker offers players this feature in order to ensure every tournament player is allocated 5 minutes at the end of each hour to take a well-deserved break from play. This allows for you to regroup and freshen up knowing that you’ll never miss one hand of action regardless of how many tournaments you have on the go.

Here’s how it works.

  • At 55 minutes past the hour, the tournament clock will stop.
  • All hands in play will play out as normal.
  • The 5-minute break will begin after all hands are completed.
  • The tournament will resume five minutes later.
  • The next break will take place at 55 minutes past the next hour.

Tournament play can be grueling and knowing you’re guaranteed that full five minutes to grab a bite to eat, use the restroom, review your play, or recover from that bad beat will help you keep bringing your ‘A’ game to the table.

You are only minutes away from playing the next big thing!
