      What is with the non-syncronised tournament breaks?

      The worst thing is in the lobby's where it says next break in.... it always says there is one coming up at 5 before the hour but then it just carries on and you come back from a shit/coffee/breakfast having missed a whole lot of hands

      Such a heinously annoying problem with such a simple fix

      It's 2012, people play more than 1 table now X( X( X( X(

      I feel your pain!

      Have you complained to the room itself?

      If it is Party Poker, bark at them using either:
      info@partypoker.com or
      tech@partypoker.com if you think it might be a tech issue.

      I don't know for WPT

      Good Luck!

      thanks for reminding me, just sent a message i'll update if and when they respond

      I'm expecting something like:

      "thankyou for your suggestion, our team will consider it and probably do nothing

      regards

      WPT"

      but you never know

      Original Message Follows: ------------------------

      Hi,

      I am a reasonably high volume player and I have been playing your tournaments lately. As I play multipul tournaments at a time and for long session it is quite important to me to have syncronised breaks.

      For 1 thing it seems like tournaments that start within 30 minutes (or more?) of a break dont break at the first hour. Other tournaments are not syncronised at all.

      I don't know why this annoying problem exists when the fix would be so so easy but do I know that I (and I assume a lot of other players) would play far more tournaments if the breaks were syncronised.

      Can something be done about this?

      Regards

      Brad Sandilands

      Their response:

      Dear Bradley,

      Thank you for contacting Customer Service.

      I would like to confirm that we have synchronised breaks at the 55th minute of every hour for all tournaments who have synchronised break mentioned in their tournament lobby. However if a tournament allows late registration and it continues throughout the first hour and the first 55th minute period, then the break will be delayed until the next 55th minute. For example: you register into a late registration game which starts at 15:30 and has late registration until 16:15, the game will have its first break at 16:55 instead of 15:55 due to the late registration.

      If you have further queries about the break schedule of the games and how they function, please provide us with tournament ids to check in particular (the number starting with 2 from the tournament lobby title).

      In case you have further questions, we will be more than happy to assist you. We are available 24/7.

      Thank you for choosing us as your online gaming site.

      Best regards,


      so there you have it, I guess i'll shit before I start my session and have food next to my computer

      seems like they didnt even read my message, i'm gonna reply again, just to be annoying.

      I don't want to do too much though in case they tweak the RNG against me

      Well their support is fast at least.

      I sent another message outlining the fact that grinding is impossible with the current system. He said he would forward it to the "team" that does the scheduling and see if something can be done.

      At the end of the day I still think playing here and missing 2 or 3 hands every hour is still so much more profitable than a stars tournament of the same buy in so I guess i'll stick with it.

      Maybe you misunderstood me, what I'm saying is that it is way better now, almost all the tables are synchronised now
