Im wanting to find a list of all the various ways you can request the dealer to hand out the tiles and how they are prepared in order to do so.. theres left, right, center out, and i think a stair ordeal, and one called dragons head- im thinking others as well.. trying to find a pretty definitive list.

In NJ, there are not as many approved deliveries as in other jurisdictions.

In NJ, you can have:

1. house way right or left

2. cup say right or left

3. jung quat

4. chee yee

5. pin say right or left

6. dragon head or phoenix tail

I think that's all of them, but I could be forgetting 1 or 2.

In NJ when you are banking, you are allowed to have the dealer cut the tiles from either end, but not from the middle. In other jurisdictions they might let you do whatever, and some places let you cut and stack the tiles yourself before they shake the dice.

I've heard of some places allowing the walking down the stairs and the "evil closes the door" deliveries, which are cool -- but I've never seen them in person.

IIRC, in Vegas I was told there are 17 different shuffles they use. Wiz, miplet, DJTB, Buehler? I'm pretty new to playing PGT.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Yeah, I remember something about that from when we all played together at Harrah's after G2E.

All I remember was that there was a lot of methods.

But I seem to also recall that they might have had a sheet that explained them all.

Ditto. That's why I was happy The Wiz was with us.
