To comment on and clarify the whole, wtf I was only gone 10 minutes, and I was picked up thing... even if you put your chips down and are swiped in but have not posted a blind before missing a blind (i.e. sit down with chips to lock up a seat but not play a hand), they will pick you up. This happened to me once. It was a total wtf experience, and someone was able to explain this to me. To put it nicely, it seems to be a unique rule to RR. I'm sure if you were an 80 year old reg, the floor would allow the brief absence and ignore the rule.
Nobody even tried to explain it to me. They just told me I was gone longer than the limit allowed which sounded impossible to me. Imagine showing up to a table you were seated in and your table tells you that you got moved to main game. Then you go to the new table and it is full and the dealer tells you to go to the floor after being gone no more than an orbit's time.
The floor even refused to put me at the top of the waitlist for the game too. It was a very irritating experience that I could be picked up simply because I got moved to the must move game when I was not at the table.
While playing, I saw lots of positive and I certainly know I probably ran bad to have such a thing happen so I can dismiss that by itself. The soft play/collusion in the O8 game that seems to not bother the staff is the major turnoff to me. I only play non holdem so w/o that O8 there is nothing else there for me to play.
These issues happened at night. The day O8 crowd seems OK so I may try it again during the day one day that I don't feel like driving to Venetian.
