I just went to a casino in Blackhawk (CO) and I watched a dealer dealing 3 card poker. She was paying the play bet when she didn't qualify. I also saw her count chips incorrectly. Later, I watched as she dealt Switch, and she paid when she got a 22.

I didn't go with much bankroll, so I didn't play the tables, just a bit of video poker. Next time, I might keep an eye out for her and take some cash for the tables.
I heart Crystal Math.

Sounds like you wouldn't have needed much cash to start doing well at her tables.

Can't blame you for that. Better take advantage while you can, I doubt she will last long making those blatant of errors.

Could they approach you in a month and ask you to return all of the money you were wrongfully paid? I mean I'm not sure if they would do this, but legally can they do it and for how long?

Dream dealer?
Sounds like a nightmare, unless of course you're more than happy to take dirty money that you do know you did not legimately win.
How you act in full knowledge of what you know is right, and still let the wrong results and the errors occur - so as long as it was in only your favor - with your blessing and bragging says a real lot about you, so as long as it was in your favor. How much did you take and keep with joy and delight? You left that part out.
You were in a position to actually help a break-in dealer, but instead you kept quiet and did nothing as you advocating participation in a gaming-industry gang rape of a break-in dealer.
Fabulous, and you seem damn proud of it. A crying shame.
That you would openly post such unethical behaviour about yourself on the Internet is astounding.
You work in this business, if a dealer were fleecing you, that is, the shoe is on the other foot, you'd be outraged and crying bloody murder.

Quick post, mobile.

I respectfully disagree with you this time, Dan. I would contend that the onus is on the casino to ensure proper training of employees...or job termination/re-assignment before they hit the floor.

I had a green BJ dealer paying me 2:1 on Naturals (only happened twice with him) when the house was 3:2.

I'm taking it my friend, sorry. I'm not being compensated to teach the guy his payouts, but there are people there who are...

I totally understand your position on this M146, and I agree with the casino opertor's responsibility and involvement, but what I was being specific about was a person's personal responsibility of being:
a) the gambler, or;
b) the gaming industry worker, and espescially:
c) one who is both.

When at a table, we are not there to teach. He didn't have to teach anything. What I am saying is that if ANYONE takes money that he knows darn well he is not entitled to, he committed a transgression. Now, if we return incorrect change (let's say change of a $20 when you paid with a $10) at a 7-11 or a Speedy Mart, we can also pocket that wrong money by also saying, "Well, it was the cashier's responsibility to do her job," and that's true, too.

So this is not about teaching anything to anyone.
It is about taking dirty money, incorrect money, "wrong" money - and when you know it was wrong.
It's not about being a teacher. It's about being a man.

Yup. Bob and I would be crossing swords on this, and I am glad he can't post. We'd just be swatting flies.

But again, my point is you either knowingly take wrong money, or you reject it, and if you do take it, it would behoove you to be mum about it.
