A player, we won’t name him, asked where the bathroom was and got directions. He was in the small blind and as the cards were dealt he checked his hand and dashed off so he would miss the least amount of action.
This is strictly against the rules as there was still action ahead of him, and as a floor man was passing he asked to be informed by the dealer when that player returned. He will face a penalty of one hand.
Don’t leave the table if you have cards and there is still action pending.
