I am playing a live tournament with a "Progressive Clock", saying 15/20/30 min clock.

What does this mean?

  • Did you try asking the dealer, or looking for a sign with the room's rules? – Herb Feb 21 '18 at 17:16
  • This sounds like it is referring to the timer for increase in blinds, but I have not heard of something like this. – Clarko Feb 21 '18 at 19:32
  • The name makes sense but I had not heard said like that. I wonder how many times the blinds go up at each clock. It would not make sense to just do one level at 15. Not a duplicate but a related question poker.stackexchange.com/questions/609/… – paparazzo Feb 22 '18 at 13:55

A progressive clock means the blind levels gradually get longer. In this case the blind levels start with 15 min levels, then 20 and finally 30 minutes.

  • Thanks, it turns out it meant at the end of every break the clock would increase (so every 6 levels or so) – Ben Feb 22 '18 at 14:28

Give the check to Raymond. I just ran some number out of curiosity.

Assume 12 levels, split the level timing equally, and double the blinds.

level    sb    bb   min  int
    1     1     2     0   15
    2     2     4    15 
    3     4     8    30 
    4     8    16    45 
    5    16    32    65   20
    6    32    64    85 
    7    64   128   105 
    8   128   256   125 
    9   256   512   155   30
   10   512  1024   185 
   11  1024  2048   215 
   12  2048  4096   245
