NEW RONALDO POKERSTARS ADVERT FOR “BEAT THE CLOCK”
To help promote their latest offering to drive recreational players to the site, “Beat the Clock”, PokerStars have released a new TV commercial featuring global sporting icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
Beat-the-clock is a brand new fast-fold format from PokerStars released primarily for low-limit, non-pro players. The idea behind the tournament is for players to last for five minutes whilst playing in “zoom” style format with one-minute blind levels. With the ever increasing blinds and antes, combined with the number of hands played, holding onto your chips is harder than it sounds – especially when each player only starts with 12.5 big blinds.
Any player left with chips at the end of five minutes will get a share of the total prizepool based on their remaining chip stack. With buy-ins currently only available at the $1, $3, and $5 limits, this format is clearly squarely aimed at the casual player who might want the fun and excitement of a high-octane game but who don’t necessarily want to spend too much time or money doing it.
