Default Re: Live Tourneys paying back < 90%

What i'm not clear on is exactly what "expenses" are. I'm under the impression that it includes the dealers and floor.

No. The "expenses" are the opportunity cost for the casino for not running cash games on those tables and collecting rake. The "expenses" are the replacement rake. You can't assume that the dealers are getting part of that beyond their regular pay. In fact, when someone says "don't forget to tip the dealers" they are saying that those "expense" are all going to the house. So not tipping in this situation is the same as not tipping in a cash game.
