Pokerstars runs on Eastern Time (the usa/canada/central america/south america eastern coast time zone)

They changed to summertime this weekend - UK doesn't change from GMT to BST for a week or two, so we are out of synch.

It always causes problems - even the UKIPT leagues, which only play in WET time zone, changed by an hour, (which is ridiculous btw - can they not get local time zone tourneys in synch with local time changes?). You really need to check the lobby an hour or two earlier.

It is annoying but they don't seem to have a decent solution - so in March/October you need to be aware - I just work on Eastern Time which is usually 5 hrs different to WET but can be more/less at these times.

Hope this makes sense -
