If you are a newbie at playing online games, there are some things that you might not know considering your experience level. One of those things is how you can go about changing or keeping your seat at a game that involves cash.
First things first, when at a poker game, it is entirely alright to take a break if you need it. That is if you need to go to the bathroom, want to stretch your legs, make or receive a call, get more money and do anything else that might not take longer than the prescribed break time given by the dealer. If you are gone for more than the time provided, you will, unfortunately, find someone else sitting at your spot on the table. If that happens, consult the staff on the floor to get your playing chips.
Now on the topic at hand, changing your seat or table, there comes a time when you feel you want to sit at a different table or chair for some reason or another. Naturally, when you leave your seat or table, the other players are given a choice on whether they want to take your spot or not. Using a button specified for changing places, you can communicate with the dealer that you are interested in moving.
As a newbie, you might not know that the seats have numbers which are universally recognised. But it is good to do your research and familiarise yourself with the seat numbers around a poker table so that when you ask to be moved, you can do so with the seat number. If you opt to move to another table, consult the floor supervisor. The supervisor will gladly transfer you to your preferred table after they have made sure that your departure will not leave the table short-handed.
When you have had it with the game, simply pick up your chips, cash them and leave. You do not need permission to leave. Bid farewell to the rest of the players kindly and just leave.
