The NBA made a drastic decision to change the game by adding a 24 sec shot clock and it revolutionized the game.I think it's time for change— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) October 31, 2012
This idea may be good for live poker on television but, perhaps, the game isn't meant to be played up-tempo. Does it really make sense to change how the game is played? Here are some questions we have:
Would a play clock just be for the WSOP?
Will a play clock become a part of all tournament poker?
Will a play clock become a part of our poker games at home the way we use a clock in chess?
Many professional sports have different rules than the amateur game. Having different rules when playing tournaments for money versus playing cash games at home may not be too far off base. There are a lot of questions of which the answers will potentially change how poker is played in the future.
Would you play poker with a play clock? Let us know in the comments.
