Angela said the party pit dealers are non-union, receive less training, get fewer breaks per shift, don't have paid vacation or sick leave. So is it true that the casinos have lower labor costs with party pit employees?
If so, this makes the stinginess of the party pit's 6:5 blackjack odds even more maddening.

Party pit dealers get lessons in eye liner application and how to fall gracefully off your eight inch platform shoes. Real dealers get lessons on Blackjack. Running a party pit and running a real BJ pit are utterly different for management, employees and the public.
Like many others I think the sound and lighting could have been better. I don't think it would be that expensive to put a lavalier mic on both of you and run it into a mixer and then into one (or both) of the cameras to get better sound. I didn't really notice terrible background noise, but that could be because of my cheap laptop speakers. Better lighting is a must though! I think one of the results on the youtube compression is a little loss in brightness so you may even want to experiment with over compensating a little to see if that gives better results.
But technical issues aside, I loved the subject matter. I wish we had a party pit where I work. :)
