Players Get Time Out with Synchronized Breaks in Latest Software Update

Las Vegas, Nevada – November 16, 2009 – has added a synchronized tournament break feature to its latest software release. Scheduled tournaments and larger Sit and Go’s will now pause for five minutes at 55 minutes past the hour, providing players with a break from the tables without the risk of losing chips or missing hands, regardless of how many tournaments they play.

In the past, players would be forced to auto-fold hands or lose blinds when nature called or a craving hit. With the new synchronized break functionality, online poker players can count on a specific break schedule no matter when they started playing their tournaments or series of Sit & Go’s.

The new synchronized break schedule is perfect for those players who play multiple tournaments at the same time. The scheduled break adds a little bit of breathing room from a long session at the poker tables and allows players to do as they please for five minutes without missing any action.

For existing players, the latest software update will automatically download the next time the software is launched. New players without the poker application on their desktop can download it for free at
