People are indeed entertained by different things. What matters is that the entertainment is appropriate for the venue. Not always it is,

He might thought it would NOT annoy the dealer.


Maybe true. But if he were getting off on annoying the dealer as "the game," - which all too many "players" do, then no, it was completely inappropriate.

Also, if a player is oblivious as to what might and might not annoy the dealer, and to what is courteous table behavior, then he isn't a very astute or considerate casino player.

This forum is a forum of gamblers, where the gamblers' point of view can be freely expressed, which is very fine, but a little input from casino workers does help to balance things.

I am also a gambler, so I do play by the rules that I know as a dealer. Some of the worst shot takers, along with some of the most gracious players, are fellow dealers and floormen.

I'm trying to think back to try and remember a player trying to annoy a dealer. I can remember annoying players, that's for sure, but they were just as annoying to we fellow players as to the dealer. Of course there's always the assholes that think it's the dealers fault when they lose that might try and "punish" the dealer for making them lose. I would think most gamblers would want to stay on the good side of the dealers for karma's sake if nothing else.

There are a lot of dense people in the world. I know at a poker table I have seen a player at the end of the table never learn to put their bets within reach of the short armed dealers. But again, I think it is because they are slow learners, not because they are doing it on purpose.

I'm not doubting Paigowdan at all though. There are some screwy people out there.

We were at a Casino Royale crap table once on a GREAT run. They were seriously running out of chips. The dealers were a little embarrassed because the felt where the last couple of stacks use to be were all dusty. The felt in those places had not seen the light of day in a long time. All of us at the table were very amused and pleased with that sight.

I've seen the same thing occasionally at craps tables. Makes you wonder why they don't have a dustbuster nearby for this situation. Of course, the answer is obvious. Using a dustbuster on a live table would make surveillance's heads explode.

You know how on a crap table the chip rows are four, five, six levels deep?

I heard the story that once, (maybe more than once), when checking the deep rows of the black chips, they found stacks of black chips that were composed of two black chips covering up 18 white ($1) chips....that made surveillance's heads explode....

Horsehair brushes are used to remove dust from tables....

Just recently, there was a French bank-robbing gang that used high-power vacuums to suck money out of banks that used pneumatic tubes to send the bills into the vault.
