Tipping should have absolutely No Effect On Dealer Performance!

That's because Dealers should ALWAYS GIVE THEIR UTMOST to player SATISFACTION WITHOUT GOD-DAMN WORRYING ABOUT TIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

unless of course we have lying-cheating shot-taker players poking us in the goddamn eye all the time.
Then they have to tip us $100 a hand if that is done....but if they don't...we still remain silent at the table...

Basically - a Dealer MUST:
1. NEVER worry about g-ddamn tips...
2. Because if he is PROVIDING service, well...then the tips take care of themselves without worry.

I mean, it all averages themsevles out...

AND:
3. a dealer must NEVER BITCH about how nasty the gamblers are at the table or on the floor!!!
4. We never do - at the table.
5. but we may feel free to VENT about the real situation - where you can indeed.

And that's at....

You know, I don't really know...at Stations, the dealer pool is split among dealers only; floormen get a flat rate...doesn't seem to be any change on this...
Anyway, back to the Pai Gow thread, anyone....

It is nice to know I am liked!!! I guess I sometimes have more fun being "not serious" here. Given the choice of triangles.... most call me acute....



I think there's only one choice left and that's a 'right' triangle. You know you're not right, right?...LOL

I have a general question about PaiGow Poker... I'm hoping to give it a shot next time I'm in Vegas (as I'll be at the Nugget, it'll be EZ, which solves paying commission nonsense). How much extra of a house edge do I expose myself to if I make errors in the setting of my hand? (E.g. what is the cost of common errors in hand setting).
"Then you can admire the real gambler, who has neither eaten, slept, thought nor lived, he has so smarted under the scourge of his martingale, so suffered on the rack of his desire for a coup at trente-et-quarante" - Honore de Balzac, 1829

Most common PG errors involve multi-path hands, hands that can be set many ways. About 60% of hands are one pair or pai gow (high-card singleton) type hands, that really should be set only one way (One pair play pair on five card side with best two-card side; high card hand play your 2nd and 3rd strongest cards on the two-card side).

Most errors involve two pair hands. Basically, with two pairs:
1. Split ace-high two pairs always. (AA44982, etc.)
2. Always split J's and 7's or better on both sides, except when having an AK only for the top. (88/QQA72, but AK/QQ882)
3. Keep together two pairs 6's and less with a K or better for the top (K9/44337, but 33/44J97)
4. All other two pairs split, unless there's an ace for the top.

With two pairs and a flush or straight, always play as a two-pair hand above, unless:
1. you can play a straight or a flush with an AK for the top, or
2. the straight or flush has two low pair (6's and less), and you cannot at least play a king for the top (6544332 play as 54/65432, not 65/44332)

Keep four of a kinds together of jacks or lower with any ace (A7/99993), but split all four of a kinds of 6's or better otherwise.

Split up a full house, unless the pair part is 6's or lower AND you have an AK/AQ for the top.

This basically covers a short and strong Pai Gow Poker hand setting method.

Two areas we're absent from are the Gulf area and the East Coast, hopefully only temporary.
