So, is it a matter of seniority, favoritism, luck of the draw regarding what tables you get to deal?
Sounds like smallish $40 - 50 entry(?) tourneys would be the worst, with most people not tipping if they didn't cash. Even the top cashers might see a $20 tip as plenty, but would have tipped more overall if they'd tipped as many winning hands as it took to finish.
And most certainly the $10/$20 cash tables have got to be a ton more profitable that the $1/$2. Even on a flat percentage basis, the higher stakes are typically generous 'big spender' types, no? So I'd think more like 15 - 20:1 (vs 10:1).
My ex-, who used to play a lot in Atlantic City, would often leave his chips at the table (so he wouldn't lose his spot), and go out for a smoke and call me for almost an hour. Now I know AC is right up there w/Vegas, and security is probably unsurpassed. And he never had an issue. But have you ever witnessed or heard of a 'sitout's' chips being compromised, stolen, whatever?
Where have you/did you work? BTW, I've been to Bozeman a couple times. They had the poker slots
in the bars & restaurants. Long time ago, maybe 14 yrs ago. But you had to cash out with the bartender.
Lastly, it was fun being with you at the final table today. Congrats on your 2nd place finish! I had a pair of 7s to your 10s (was barely beneath you in chips) that send me to the rail. Great game!
