yes, two hours patiently waiting for that big hand and you were out because of that less than a minute piss. my advice, although crude is that u leave a bottle on the side to avoid these accidents, mainly in the final straights. ps: your family may think you have gone crazy.

The best way is to sit on the toilet seat during whole session.

This happens very rarely, but nevertheless, it does not actually affect your results in the long run. Alternatively, you can take your laptop to the bathroom and play poker there.

Sometimes it happens to me when I don't have time to return. But there is a possibility that these aces could be the reason for your early ending of the tournament.

True. I rarely leave the table, but when I do: I am not going to worry about the hand I might have gotten. Similarly, I know some people "sit out" for a hand or two after a bad beat. What you might lose by not playing a hand that might be Aces is countered by you not going on tilt or something.

If you need to use the bathroom then go and if you need a breather to calm down after a hand, then take it. Don't overthink things superstitiously here.

This can happen to any player. And that is why every hour there is a five-minute break. During this break I have time to do everything I need.

Mother Nature doesn't want to know about those 5 minutes. When she calls, just pick up, geriatric diapers are also a good option if you're ashamed of bottles. It is difficult to play the tournament after losing a pair of aces or kings in a giant pot. One day you will still prove me right.

Live tourneys have breaks as much as 2 hours apart. Drinks are complimentary....

When you have to go, you have to go. Better to miss a big hand than wet or soil your pants, that would make for an unpleasant time.

Years of training waiting for those 5 minutes of rest to do what you have to do, but in any case you take your laptop to the bathroom or take your cell phone and so you don't miss anything, just don't forget to wash your hands well before continuing. the game, lol :D

The worst part is to see it, scramble to try to quickly bet, only to have it fold right before your eyes. Grrrrr.

You had no way of knowing what you'd be dealt while you were away from the table and it should not affect your play going forward. If it happens, it happens. There's nothing you can do. You always want to be as comfortable as possible while playing so that you can bring your "A" game and make the best decisions possible. If you're sitting there having to use the bathroom, you'll be uncomfortable. Take care of yourself :)
