Definition of tank
When we talk about "tank" we are talking about our time bank. When we say that a player is entering the "tank", it means that he or she has a tough decision to make and is using up his or her thinking time. In a live casino, a player will usually be given as much time as he or she needs to think, as long as it is a reasonable amount of time. If any of the players at the table feel that the time limit is not reasonable, then they can request that a timer be put on to force them to make their decision within a specific time limit.
The tank when playing online
When playing online poker, the tank is more precise and visible to all. For example, at the beginning of a tournament, each player has a 60-second time bank. ? each round, the player must act in 10 seconds. If he acts in less than 10 seconds, he will keep his time bank. If he needs more than 10 seconds to think, he can click on his "tank" to get more time. When his tank is empty, his hand will automatically be put down.
