There’s usually a lot of action when players gather at the poker table, so it will be a magnificent idea to acquaint yourself with the atmospheres before you think of starting to play. This page introduces you to all the great and exceptional features that are available when you have made up your mind to play at the GoPoker.in table. Scroll down to read and know more about all of our table features.
Sometimes, the decisions we made are harder than others. Some decisions like making big calls and big lay-downs consume lots of time, even for the so-called world’s best players – and in the game of poker, time waits for no one.
Our Time Banks give you the opportunity to have extra time whenever the need arises, so that you can give your strongest decisions the time they really deserve.
Using the time Banks
This is really simple – when the colored bar in your pot starts counting down, giving signs that you are running out of time, just use the cursor to click on the “Time” button. The button is displayed directly above the betting slider which is located at the lower right of the table window.
Once you click the “Time” button, the countdown of the colored bar will continue. When the bar disappears, you will start using the time from your time bank, and immediately, the entire time you have left to make a decision will be shown.
When you make a voluntary contribution to the pot, your time bank will activate automatically. You’ll also know when your opponents start using the time out of their time banks. A black box will show up in the time bank spot, displaying the time they have left to act.
Can I Make a Deposit when it’s in a Time Bank?
No, you can’t buy time or manually add it, but the quantity of time in your time bank escalates with every hand you play. Also, after every tournament break it increases, and you can also get an extra amount by the time you get to the final table of a tournament.
You can disconnect the Time Bank
We know that all Internet connections are not equal. That’s why we decided to add a Disconnect Time Bank that offers extra protection against any connections that drops.
Our server will automatically inform the other players that you’re playing with through the table chat window when it detects that you have been disconnected. Then, when your allotted decision time is reached, your Disconnect Time Bank will be shown to other players and counting down will begin. Out of the total disconnect time per 24-hour period; your time allowed is just 90 seconds.
