Just a question. In hold’em Dvd Poker players are blinded out if they are gone too long from a table. How is that done in seven card stud?
Ante them out. I’m assuming this is a question for tournament structures, as in a ring game you’d just receive a missed blind button in a flop game, and nothing besides potential rude comments from your opponents in a stud game.
Some casinos give a button every time a dealer changes (usually about 20 minutes), After two or three dealers, they are pulled.
The rule is made by the poker room. In a non-tournament game, I’ve seen the first player get 30 minutes, the second one to leave get 15 minutes away before their seat is forfeited. Some rooms have shorter limits if you have a waiting list.
