Action Clock Rules

Action Clock:

Dealer will initiate the start of the tournament action clock upon the completion of the deal. Time will begin for a player once the natural flow of play has come to a brief pause pending their action and be reset to the corresponding time for the next player to act.

Rules:

When players act in turn, the Action Clock will be reset, with each player receiving a fresh 30 seconds to begin his or her action. When a bet or raise has been made, the dealer will announce the bet or raise (including all in bets) prior to starting the Action Clock for the next player. To facilitate the smooth operation of the tournament, all tournament chips must remain in full stacks of twenty (20) chips, when available. When breaking a table, a player must keep their time extensions and tournament chips in plain view while traveling to their new seat.

Time Extensions:

Each time extension will add an additional thirty (30) seconds to act. Players will receive time extension chips at predetermined stages (set level or remaining number of players) as outlined on the structure sheet. Players are required to keep all time extension chips visible and on the table at all times. At the conclusion of each day, any unused time extensions will be placed in the player's tournament chip bag and will carry over to the next tournament day. Time extensions are to be treated with the same level of importance as tournament chips, and removal of the time extensions may be subject to penalty up to and including disqualification.

Warnings:

Players will automatically lose one (1) time extension each time the Action Clock reaches zero (0), and will be instructed by the dealer to turn in the corresponding amount of time extensions used at the completion of their action. Players are not responsible for placing a time extension chip into the pot in real time. In the event that a player does not have any time extensions remaining and the Action Clock reached zero (0), the player's hand will be declared dead (or the player will be forced to check if facing no action).
