Justin Bonomo encountered time bank issue at PartyPoker
On Thursday, Justin Bonomo played the final table of the $25 000 High Roller at the WPT. In the heads-up, Justin lost first place to Ottomar Ladva from Estonia and, according to the Canadian, this was due to the PartyPoker software bug.
The thing is that Bonomo's time bank did not work correctly during the tournament: it fluctuated between 140 and 0 seconds. In one of the hands, that played a very important role, as Bonomo checked a full house on the river:
On Twitter, Bonomo also reported that his time bank had changed from 140 to 10 seconds, and then to zero. All this happened during the hand, so he had to play without the time bank. Thus, Justin had no more than 15 seconds to make a decision throughout the decisive heads-up.

The player also added that, during the hand, he had talked to his personal PartyPoker manager. It was hard for Justin to concentrate on the game: he requested a pause in the tournament but his request was denied, so the guy was forced to answer the manager's questions and play the hand simultaneously.
PartyPoker has yet to reply to Bonomo via the official Twitter page, but it is unlikely that Bonomo’s tournament result will change. Have you ever encountered a time bank issue at PartyPoker?
