To me a table game is playing against the house not against other participants.
thanks in advance
However, when it comes the security it will group in poker with the table games as in the example you give as it seems that any area where there could be face to face contact with a dealer and opportunity for collusion is covered by the regulation.
THAT BEING SAID, before you sit in a game and risk your job I'd ask your boss. Because what your local GCB says and what your company says are "table games" might differ. Near me you can't play poker if you work there and with good reason--there is still the chance for collusion when you play with a dealer you work with. Even if the possibility is remote, it just doesn't look good.
First, as stated before, poker is usually considered a seperate entity within the casino. Way back the owner of the Dunes (I forget which) used to play in his own poker room often and was allowed to by the NGCB becuse it was players vs players and not players vs the house. I don't know if this is still an exception to the "no play at your own place" rule or not.
Good point. Doesn't Jackie Gaughan play in the poker room at the El Cortez as well?
