Sitting out rules

Players are expected to be seated and reserve seats with the purpose of playing. There is a limit of two seating attempts per table without playing during any six-hour period.

At tables with more than two seats:

  • It is acceptable to be seated but occasionally deny action in certain circumstances, such as being seated to help start a new cash game but not wanting to play heads-up.
  • It is not acceptable to remain sitting out at a table (especially an active one) waiting for one of only a few preferred opponents to arrive.

In general, seated players are expected to accept action much more often than they refuse it.
