first time playing live poker in a casino, i played 2/4 limit and doubled up flopping a straight pretty stoked next hand i get dealt 33, limp mid pos, get raised and call, 4 players are in and i dont hit and am facing a bet so i ask the dealer the size of the pot( usually i only play nl 99% the time but im out of a job and have only ever played online and home game tourneys with of course the weakest fields ever so i cant really afford to lose 100 dollars which is the min buyin for a nl table at lowest stakes and i play 5cnl mostly sometimes 10cnl). Anyway after asking the dealer the size of the pot he gives me slight attitude basically in disbelief that i would ask such a question and says its 2 dollars to u what does it matter. and i folded and left before seeing another hand and said "ok, if u can't tell me the size of the pot what would i play for, limit hold em is a game about pot odds
before anything else"(got laughed at and wish i could have a giant bankroll with an exuctive position in work field like the idiots at the table). Has anyone else ever dealt with that, im pretty sure i have the right to know the size of the pot, i figure that is the dealers job to manage the table and answer questions asked, how lazy can u be not to count the pot. what a horrible dealer right, like really he works for tips for crying out loud, if that were my job i'd be all over that. how the hell am i supposed to count the pot if its a scattered mess, even when im in dealer position in a home game i manage the pot like a boss, if u cant count the pot when im dealer u shouldnt play poker. And if you tell me it's the job of the poker player to know the size of the pot then why do i always hear people on television asking the same question i did.
