I severely beg to differ that you could make more in 2-3 months with a $200 bankroll than I can dealing 4 nights a week. Hell I will give you 10 to 1 odds
on whatever you wanted to lay down. I highly doubt you were ever a dealer because of your statement, you are definitely not everyone's bitch. Dealing is a really fun and exciting career that pays well.
In response to the question about dealing. Yes, dealing helped my game. It helped me more with my ring game play and also with reads. I find myself at work pretending I am in the hand sometimes and I so want to say to the guy pondering his decision, "DUDE, CALL HE IS BLUFFING!!!" and then he mucks and the other guy shows a busted draw, lol.
I went to dealing school to help my chances at getting hired. Some casinos
don't require prior knowledge or school, but it helps your chances a ton. When I went it was $850 for a 6 week course and it covered Holdem, Omaha, Omaha 8ob, Stud, Stud 8ob, and Razz. We even covered Pineapple and Crazy Pineapple. The nice thing was that the school taught us the procedures of the casino I was trying to work at, so we knew how they did the rake and also the house policies. I went to the school in 2006 and didn't get into the casino until 2008. We only have one casino close enough to Buffalo to be able to commute to work and that's why it took me 2 yrs to get a job. I love it, and PM me if you want more info.
