  • 12. All games are “table stakes” meaning all chips must remain on the table and in play, until the player leaves the game. When cashing out, a player may not return to the same table for 60 minutes, unless he/she buys-in for at least the amount with which he/she had previously left.
  • 13. A bet and three raises will be allowed each betting round in limit games. There will be an unlimited amount of raises in no-limit games.
  • 14. If a betting round begins with only two players, there is no limit to the raises allowed.

If a player has zero chips, they have 15 minutes to return. If there is no waiting list and no seat open, a player’s chips may be picked up in order to give the remaining players an opportunity to get a new player in the absent player’s seat. Management reserves the right to pick up players chips and open the seat to waiting players.
