I've never had a tipping problem. Ask any of my dealers. :-)

I like using the side bets for tips if available to avoid this whole mess.

In this situation, i guess the tip is only for the first split hand and not the second?

With the recommendation of adding the tip to your bet, lets say 15+1, that would obligate the OP to double his tip here, if he split.

He wouldn't have to tip the additional $1 if he didn't want to. If the dealer turns into a rude jerk, the extra dollar can be kept by the player after a win. e.g. dealer exclaims "wow! You're betting $100 and offering me a lousy $1 tip" or "You're coming in mid-shoe, you're going to make everyone lose. [dealer draws to 21]See? You made everyone lose!", or even "You hit on a hard 17? You just don't know how to play, sir! [I was playing Spanish 21 and WON the hand!] In the future, you should play 'properly', otherwise you'll make everyone lose" Unfortunately, I HAVE had dealers tell me these things! I would rather slow the game down and "tip" an extra dollar for myself than give it to a rude dealer.
