Medical Issue Causes Delay On Table 366

Nivel 8 : 200/500, 100 ante

There was a bit of a crowd brewing around Table 366 in the Amazon Room, but it's not from spectators or other players. The crowd gathering around the table is of security guards and paramedics from the fire department to provide assistance to one of the players at the table. We're unsure of exactly what the issue is, but the player (who we will keep unnamed for privacy reasons) has been getting checked out by medical staff for nearly 30 minutes now. No hands have been played at the table, and a stretcher was even brought out after a bit of time

After a bit of time, the player was up and standing on his own, but the conversation overheard seemed to lend us to believe the paramedics advised the player that he should go home for the night. Because of the delay, the tournament staff decided to break the table and move the other players elsewhere so they could continue playing while this player received some more treatment. The player's chips were moved and put into play at a different table as well.

After a the clock rolled over into the last level of the night, the player was walked over to his new seat by the tournament staff where he joined back up with his stack to continue play.
