Bingo. Suits may not divulge private info about
a player to another player. I've always been told
by suits they can lose their jobs for doing it.




They may not, but they do!

Never seen it, and I've tried to get a suit to
talk. They refuse to discuss private details
of a player, in fact they get downright testy
if you push it.

Bob - perhaps it is an east coast thing, but I hear casino employees discussing all sorts of
details of other patrons (i.e. their betting styles, their strategy, what they do for a living, etc.)

" Dealers or floormen may not disparage any player to any other player."

Glad you said may not instead of will not. Happened all the time on the buses from Blackhawk. And lots of poker dealers will discuss who plays good or bad, and cite examples on the poker room floor.

Biggest gossips and prop player/ dealers.

And thats considered ethical business behavior, to discuss
customers behind their backs with other customers? My
barber won't even do that, and he's asked to all the time.
He always says, you want me talking about you when you
aren't here? The local manager of the grocery store won't
do it either, I've tried. If the pit of a casino is doing it, thats
one sleazy joint that wouldn't get my business.

Bob, just how high a level of ethical standards do you think minimum wage employees concerning non-tippers. And i can usually get the low down on the better poker or tournament players in almost any casino in Colorado. Strictly bullshit as a payment too.
Imagine what somebody with a little green can find out in Vegas.

Van Thu Tran and her husband Phuong Truong had no trouble recruiting dealers for their false shuffle scam. So how hard should it be to just find a chatterbox ?

To add to this, casino dealers and floorman talk about absent poker players ALL THE TIME in the poker room. Not only when they've played, but number amounts of wins and losses. It's completely commonplace.

e.g., you should have gotten here this morning, Bob lost 4 racks... etc.

The pit giving out private details of other players to the public.
Name, profession, details about their lives.

You must go to entirely different casinos than I do, thats about
as unethical as you can get. If I heard that happening about me,
I'd raise so much hell with upper management they'd never get
over it.

In Colorado I know of 2 casinos where dealers also are prop players. Worse yet when dealing have seen them look at winners hand when there is no showdown. SCREW THAT !
