Time Bank

 

At Black Chip Poker we understand that you are  
playing poker for your hard earned money.

It is because of this we’ve found a way for you to best manage your time at the table and think through those key decisions properly.

Black Chip Poker’s software upgrade includes the revolutionary ‘Time Bank’ technology. This allows you to request more time as need be in order to make your decision on a hand. You can now do withdraw from the ‘Time Bank’ by pressing the button that appears after you’ve used your original amount of allotted time.

You can then use this feature much as you’d use a normal bank. Each player is allotted an equal amount of time from which they can withdrawal. It allows players to use a reasonable amount of time in order to make their decision, without holding up the game by taking too long. In tournaments, your Time Bank can only be used once (once the time runs out, you can’t replenish it), however, in multi table tournaments, all players at the final table will have their Time Bank replenished. At cash tables, an additional second will be added to your Time Bank for every 10 hands you play.

The Time Bank button will appear when you have half your time left to act, example, in a regular speed game the button will appear during the last 9 seconds to act.
 
 

 
 
In order to enable the Auto Time Bank feature simply click in the table options menu on the top right hand corner of your table. From there, under general, check the “Auto Engage Time Bank” box. After applying your choice, your Time Bank will automatically be used when is necessary.
 
 

 
 
The amount of time in your bank depends on whether or not you’re sitting at a cash game or tournament. See below for the amount of time for each corresponding type of game.
