Late Registration Option
Let’s say you’ve been looking forward to a poker tournament all week, but get stuck in traffic and will be 30 minutes late for the start of the action. Depending on the buy-in and tourney structure, Americas Cardroom allows late registration up to 180 minutes. Not only does this cover players in time of traffic jams and unexpected delays, but by allowing late players in, it allows for larger prize pools. It’s also a great feature for those who get knocked out of a tournament early and are interested in buying back after thinking on it.
If you’re on a tight schedule and don’t have a ton of time to play poker online, Blitz Poker is for you. Unlike cash games, you don’t join a specific table, but rather are tossed into a player pool. Once you fold your hand, you’re automatically placed at another table with other pool players who also folded their hands. This keeps the action moving and you’re not stuck waiting several minutes for fellow players to make their bets, think and wait for the hand to end. If you’re out of one hand, you’re in another in seconds. This allows you to enjoy more hands in less time.
This poker version is exclusively for No-Limit Texas Hold’em and available to mobile players.
