Maximum sitting out time in cash games

There are three main rules regarding sitting out hands, they are:

  1. In a 9-handed Hold'em or Omaha game, a player will be removed from the table after missing three opportunities to post the blinds.
  2. In a 6-handed table, a player will be removed after missing four opportunities to post the blinds.
  3. In a Stud game, a player will be removed from the table after missing 20 opportunities to post their ante.

However, such removals will only take place if there is a waiting list for the game (i.e. if the sitting out player is occupying a seat that someone else has indicated that they want).
