In addition, this would be the debut of the High Rollers (Single Day) Shot Clock along with the use of the Ante-BB format for all APT tournaments in the Philippines…
So what is the Ante BB? The Ante BB format is the latest innovation to the game of poker. It does away with the traditional style of everyone at the table posting an ante, and instead, only one player is given the responsibility, the big blind player. The big blind player posts for everyone. This new method greatly helps speed up the game with the dealer only looking to the big blind player for the ante. The Ante BB is equivalent to one big blind no matter how many players are seated. In essence, the big blind player posts the total of two big blinds on his/her turn.
