You're absolutely right, Nate. That is ridiculous. I only tip if I've won a big pot. If I'm not winning, I'm not tipping. Even though I do think it's courteous to tip, I do find myself wondering why I'm tipping the dealer...are they stacking the deck in my favor? So I can definitely see others' points why they don't.nateofdeath said:i've seen pleanty of people do that and tip $.50 a hand
wsorbust said:I've never played a live tournament...but I'm reading people tip after a large pot and it seems very illogical to me. Wouldn't you tip at the end of the tournament or before you leave the table? It would seem a lot more logical and cheaper. They get paid well to begin with...If you tip them every time someone wins a big hand, then I'd think they're getting overpaid.
I know a couple of dealers from our local casino. Let me tell ya, they aren't exactly rolling in the dough. Sure, I imagine they make an OK wage, but it's not as if they're making money hand over fist. So a little tip here and there is nice.wsorbust said:They get paid well to begin with...
ok. . . but I would still do it right before I left a table.Unless I read the thread incorrectly I think we're talking cash games.
Of course... I realize this. But, it's like any other job without a college education...such as a waiter/ess. . . Both pay well....considering. . .whether you consider it well or not is another story. I do.Let me tell ya, they aren't exactly rolling in the dough.

I think your first line is a little stereotypical. Not all service people lack education. Some even have some college if not complete college degrees. But, there are a few that can make more in the service industry than they can in their major.
