If the timeout expires the player will go in a sleeping mode where the system will do only some basic automatic actions in place of the player: to pay and to add money to his bank.
The player will wake up if he does personaly some action.

Players

Are some players bot?

Yes it is. You can easily know if some player is a bot because every bot has a robot as icon.
Bots entertain people while they are waiting to play a human.game.

Do bots cheat? Do they watch my cards or get card from the deck?

They dont. Believe or not the answer is NO.
It is psychologically very interesting to see that some people think that bots use some tricks.

I never got to play against a human. How can I do?

While you are playing a game with a bot you can see (in the lower-left box) if there are some games without bot that you can join.
If so you can join it ad come back to complete the bot's game later.

How can I play a game with more than 2 players?

You must create a new game and start only when all players who want to have joined it,
or you must join a human game and hope that the owner starts only when there are more than 2 players.

How does the scoring work?

I did a very very simple ranking similar to ELO chess.
More ranked is your enemy and more score you gain winning against it.
Less ranked is your enemy and more score you lost losing against it.
winner game_score = ( 1 - (your_score /all_players_score) ) * K
loser game_score = -(your_score/all_players_scores)*K
K is 60 for the first game then the value drops to below 10
If you win, your score will be increased by game_score, otherwise it will be decremented by game_score.
If a player do not play for a long time the score will be progressly decrease
