What's everyone's thoughts on tipping at the casino? Do you normally tip bigger when you win a large pot or the same amount no matter the amount won (if you tip at all?).

You can tip a buck or a little more if you win a good pot. But be careful you don't want to tip away the profit you make as the rake is already hard enough to beat.

I normally tip 1$ if I win a hand, but never two hands in a row if I win multiple, I'll wait a little while.

I usually give a good tip when I win a big pot
I usually give a good tip when I win a big pot. In general, it is desirable to give a tip as often as possible to maintain positive energy at the table, and that the attitude of the dealer to you was particularly good. I worked for 3 years as a dealer and I know how it is nice to get tips from players, the mood immediately rises and it becomes even more pleasant to work. Be generous and good luck will come to you)

I never expected a tip every single hand I dealt. If the hand is complicated with multiple side pots, and i managed to get everything right....come on man hehehehe a buck doesnt hurt.
I would get tipped 4/10 hands and that was good enough for me to make some pretty good money.

re: Poker & Tipping the dealer live for 1/2 no limit
I guess you guys haven't been around the game long enough. I play 1-2 consistently. I am a weekly grinder and typically put in 25-30 hours per week for the past 5-6 months. Earnings range from about 800-1500 a month. A good month 3k profit. But the average is always about 1200-1500. If i tipped a buck or two, or 5 for 100$+ pot every month, that amounts to about 400-500 monthly....in tips....4500 cash a year simple math. Bottom line...i do not tip anymore. Plain and simple end of story. Ask yourself this question.
Do you want to be a profitable poker player every month? If you do you'll save yourself a couple of buy-ins a month.
Best of luck, Soto

I used to play 1/2 in a cardroom where the dealers were not paid! Tips only! It was here that I adopted my dealer tipping behaviour of $1 for any win. That means win $200 pot - $1 tip, win $3 blinds - $1 tip.
This may not be the most profitable strategy for me, but it seems like the right thing to do.
