Poker.com moves to it's own timezone again

Today's the big day when poker.com takes it's traditional move away from the Eastern Time Zone and goes into what's called Poker.com time. Perhaps more specifically, it could be argued that since Poker.com remains in the GMT-5 Time Zone, that it is always poker.com time, and the Eastern Time Zone simply leaves poker.com time, ousted in favor of the Central Time Zone, who is now GMT-5.

Not to worry though, us confused Easterners have options... First, you can look at the lobby clock at poker.com, which is in fact prominantly located on the top right side of the lobby. Second, you could simply remember that poker.com is still GMT-5, and WE made the adjustment.

Third, you can have one of those more elaborate setups, such as found in the old fashioned major news rooms and have the times of major places in the world, such as New York, London, Paris, Moscow, Tokyo, Poker.com all have their own clocks on the wall.

No matter how you do it, just remember that Poker.com is still GMT-5, and the Eastern Time Zone is now GMT-4.
