So let me ask you this; have you ever heard these dealers talk about one player, using the players name when you were with them, besides just saying something like you know Mr. C is the biggest jerk that I've ever had to deal to?



No, I have not.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Regardless of the rules, I will tell you that when there are no other players around, dealers tell me all kinds of things that they are probably not supposed to tell me. And especially about other players. I generally know that revealing the details of who told me what will cut off future information, so I just keep it to myself.

But the point that I am making is that people will continue to break rules if they feel they can trust you not to bust their balls for giving you information.

I get really great stories from dealers when I play at empty tables about all KINDS of things that happen. Both specific to other casino employees and to players. It's a regular soap opera out there if you earn some trust and visit regularly enough.

When you're at a casino that flips dealers for box, they are also more lenient about allowing the dealers to speak freely. Also when it's graveyard and there is no box, that's a great time to get great stories about the truth of what happens that you don't always hear about.

I second that.
People talk about people, especially in retail OR in service to the general public, and dealers are absolutely people who may talk about people and about their customers to fellow dealers and other trusted players.

Some customers are great, others are absolute pricks, - and players behavior in a casino is on full display to one and to all, and it will be noticed, and discussed among some groups. Don't forget this.

To expect people not to have feelings, to not notice, and to not discuss their work among their own colleagues is expecting a bit too much. If you wish to be spoken kindly of by people, then it is better to act gracious instead of boorish.
