i won 16K in Vegas last year and tipped about $300
so about 2% and only from the winner assumedly. I am moving to Vegas in January and will be playing small buy-in tournaments as my income. Under $100 buy-ins to start out with 3 or 4 a day. I did this full time in Atlantic City also a few years back, but those tournaments usually ended up in a chop and we would all throw in a few bucks in each, but not sure if I will be facing this same chop tradition when in the money in these in Vegas or whether they mostly play it out, but will find out when I'm there.
