The world’s largest real money online poker site, PokerStars, has shelved its timed Beat the Clock tournaments after having introduced the five minute long Sit & Go Zoom games just under a year ago.

The reaction? Crickets.  Not even on the TwoPlusTwo.com forums is this action being discussed.

The company issued this statement Tuesday:

“We [PokerStars] will be making some changes to the client which will involve the removal of Beat The Clock. PokerStars has decided to shelve the timed Sit & Go format to make way for new products that we wish to feature more prominently within the client. This decision has also in part been dictated by the need to cater to evolving player tastes, which inevitably change over time.” - Ace King, Gambling911.com
