This has nothing to do with dealers but another annoying thing is when cashing out the cashier says congratulations.They have no Idea if you have won or lost,just because you are cashing in a large amount they assume you won.

Cashiers have an idea of the average buy-in, and may make assumptions and some small talk. So what....

In cases like this I usually say something like, "Oh no, don't touch it yet, I haven't paid you."



Where do you deal? I'm guessing it's not in Vegas.

BTW I forgot: ask for a player card, unless that's not policiy. I usually hand my player card along with the buy-in, but someitmes I forget.

At the cage at Bill's the cahier asked me "Did you win today?" Which I thought was nice.

At the 4 Queens once the cashier told me "That's a cute necklace!" Which I thought was nicer :)

So What!Cashiers have no knowledge of what an individual bought in for.So a player cashes in 2000 but they have bought in for 5000,so a 3000 loss,you think they want to hear Congratulations.I think not.

Is the cut in blackjack dealer dependent?



Depending on where you are it is to a point. Some places have a notch sawed into the discard tray where the cut card is required to be. Some places cut by hand to an approximate area. Better tip=better penetration. The way to kill a stingy blackjack player is to deal as fast as possible and offer terrible penetration. More hands per minute= faster house edge creeping up, worse penetration =no counting, etc...

Worse penetration means less hands per hour,so unless the player is a counter you shoul deal faster and give greater penetration if you want to wipe him out.

My biggest pet peeve is when dealers give me unwanted advice (almost always incorrect) or push bonus bets I don't want to play.



In general, I try not to give advice to players. If they ask me, I'll either tell them, "The book says..." or say, "You should ask the other players, they have money on this, I don't."

The only time I give unsolicited advice is when someone who's otherwise been playing pretty good BS tries to make a move that seems foolish (hitting a '15' against my '6', for example) and I'll say, "Are you sure?" and I'll point at my 6. Usually they are glad I acted as a safety mechanism, but if they don't appreciate it, next time I just do what they asked.

When a player says he doesn`t want to be rated,don`t then say, whats your name.



I've never done that. If a player doesen't have a card or want to be rated, I say, "Fair enough." and move on with the buy in. It's no skin off my nose if the player doesn't want comps.

If I didn't know better, I'd say you get to keep your own tips.



Nope. Some nights I wish I did. Others I'm very glad they're pooled.

Occasionally, under certain circumstances, he would declare each player as having a losing hand, take the bet, and put it on the edge of the rack. He wouldn't fold our cards. I.E. He did it in a manner that made it simple to undo. And when he busted out, he would say something like, "OK. I just made extra work for myself," while placing our bets back in the circle before paying them.



That sounds like a dangerous practice, I wouldn't do anything like that, but I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Nope, not Vegas. For my own privacy I must decline to disclose the location.

I always do, unless it's under $50 buy in. I've found that most players that buy in that low don't have them, and it seems to irritate our floor supervisors to put them into the computer for those low amounts, so I try to keep everyone happy by just getting on with the buy in procedure.

I've heard about cage cashiers getting their head ripped off for congratulating someone cashing in, only to be told they lost much more. I can see how that would be annoying, but to most of us, $1000 or more is a lot of money and it's hard for that not to look like a good thing. I usually ask players how they've been doing, if they say 'good' then I say, "Ok, let's keep it going!" if they say they're down, I'll ask how far we have to go to get them back to even, and then say, "Alright, let's get your money back!" I try not to assume that just because someone sits down and cheque changes a purple that they're having a good night.

We need more dealers like MonkeyMonkey.

I appreciate dealers who go the extra mile. Gambling is strictly entertainment for me, so I want to have a good time. This can be as simple as the dealers greeting me by name, or reminding me about my usual bets. If things are slow, I enjoy chatting with the dealers. Having good, professional, friendly dealers have a huge impact if I would play at a casino again.
