Anyone know how long you're allowed to "sit out" before you're removed from the tables?

Curious about PS ZOOM tables and FTP Rush tables. I want to play deeper stacked poker but I don't want to sit for hours and hours, would like to take breaks!

Thanks!

Do know if it's changed since this thread.

"The official amount of time we will be setting for all tables will be 30 minutes.
This means that you can sit out for 30 minutes before being removed from the table by the server."

I was under the impression it was 15 minutes. I've been kicked after that amount of time before.

Going to try and experiment over lunch on something - there probably won't be anything to report though, so ... never mind

Zoom is 30 minutes. Not sure on Rush, seems to be longer.

Zoom test was 30 minutes on the dot for me. Rush was an hour I think, I wasn't watching it precisely past the 40 minute mark though.

Did you come up with the same results Sam?

Oh, my experiment was to try and get the table to stay open for an hour by putting the computer to sleep, but it didn't work ... looks like only me and my computer were napping, but Stars was still on the job and kicked me off of the table, like usual

PS Oh, time for lunch!
