Only "Cleavage BJ Dealers" may dab sticky stuff on their hands while dealing BJ otherwise its a way to mark the cards even if they are not marking good or bad,,, people can recognize cards that have smears on them.

At the Party Pits, no one really cares because the guys are not looking at the cards anyway.

I hate to break the news.. but it's not just the dealers you have to worry about. (by the way, it could have been allergies).

They NEVER wash the chips. So think of all the sleaze you're getting when you touch each chip.



I have seen chips washed 100 percent most casinos don't but I have seen one or two

I guarantee you more than 50% of the casino PIGS I see in the restroom walk out of there WITHOUT washing their hands. Probably greater than 50%. And it's not just taking a leak. I've seen them come out of a stall and head right back to the games, probably wiped their butt and everything, but no washing their hands. I guess they're in a hurry. I wonder if the women are just as filthy. Can't be, just can't be.

Im usually not much of a germiphobe but watching people eat food at the poker table disgusts me. I can imagine all the germs from the chips traveling to their hands traveling to their food traveling to their mouth.

Practicing card counting. The Asian dealer at the table was the fastest dealer I've seen in over 12 years. It was quite difficult.



Do not allow a dealer to dictate the speed of the game. If he's gathering the cards too fast for you, ask for a recount. Do that a few times and he'll slow down to your pace. Never take a dealers word on what his hand was.

I eat while playing poker, but no finger food!

If it's not something designed to be eaten with a fork and knife, I ain't ordering it.

Thanks for the tip. I was just practicing speed counting but I like your idea.

Wait, speed counting takes practice? I thought one just shows up drunk af, high fives everybody and raise bet if you don't notice an Ace for a while.

I'm speaking from limited experience, as I've only been to Las Vegas four times but by the third day of each trip I had a sore throat and cough that progressed to a full blown respiratory infection within a week. Now I realize that the casino environment might not bear the total blame. Air travel sticks you in a metal tube breathing recycled air shared by a bunch of people, any of whom may be germ carriers. Also, these trips were back in the mid-80s - lots of construction and therefore lots of grit and dust in the air. But I was not out power-walking Las Vegas Blvd. so I do tend to think that the vectors were likely casino chips, slot buttons (and arms - like I said, mid-80s) and less than considerate fellow patrons.

For defense in the future I would probably carry a small pack of those wipes used to clean keyboards to swab the buttons of any machine I would play. Also a little bottle of anti-bac hand rinse to get rid of nasties before they can be transferred to my mouth or eyes. An actively coughing or sneezing dealer is a harder problem. In Japan you see many people wearing those disposable surgical masks in public. I suppose that would be frowned upon in a casino, but if allowed it could even be an AP move. Just try to get a face recognition software match on a patch of white gauze!

The strange thing that happens to me when I go to Vegas is I get monstrous headaches. I feel like my hair (what's left) is literally standing on end and being pulled out of my skull. Luckily, I have never gotten sick while in Vegas.
