    I'm not a poker player, but I follow Trooper97's vlog on youtube, and I notice that he apparently takes breaks from the game to get a coffee, some food, or just walk around recording his thoughts...

    My questions are... What happens to his seat at the table in this situation? What if there are other people "on the list" to play? What happens to his chips? Does he have to cash out or does he just leave his chips on the table while he's away? How long can he be away from the table?

    Appreciate any answers... Thanks..!!

    Most rooms will remove a player if they have 2 " missed big blind" buttons for someone on the waiting list. However, a player can request a " dinner button" and at most casinos that will allow he/she to leave for up to an hour to eat (or do whatever). Some rooms may not allow it but I have never been in a room that didn't allow it!
