      where you saw that? (is it better to say: where have you seen that? ?( )

      it sound to me somehow useless, because everbody has same amount of time - so how to abuse it?

      I was recently playing a stars Pokerschool open league tournament. One player was waiting the maximum allowed time on every single hand and then folding. This went on for some time. Eventually when (s)he was down to around 300 chips the player went all-in. Every single player round the table called without hesitating and not surprisingly that was the end of it. Quite funny as a one off but it really would be annoying if this stalling tactic was the rule.

      I will try it now also, maybe I get also warning :)

      I think it is as you said already in between the rules for everyone - so if they don't like it then they should remove the timebank at all :D
