Default Is it okay to not tip in a 5-10 game with a $7 rake?

Yes, that's right $7. 10% up to $6 plus a dollar for the bad beat whores. And don't tell me I have equity in the bad beat. I would never hit it, not in a billion years.

This casino also has communal tipping. AND they usually have 2 or 3 empty seats at table for an hour+ with 15+ deep on the waitlist. They probably do this deliberately to get the rake faster.


So......

If I choose not to tip under these conditions, am I a nit?



BONUS FUN QUESTION: Does anyone know what casino I went to yesterday?

Bring quarters and tip $50 a hand. Tip a dollar for your big ones. I agree, that is rather obscene. Where is this located?

Motorcity would be my guess.
It would be acceptable to simply not play there.

You're right, it's Motorcity.

But my only other option is Greektown.

you'd think when they were already raking 6 dollars they might forego the jp drop [img]/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Will there ever be good poker in detriot?

If you choose to play in this game, I do not think it is ok to screw the dealers because the casino is greedy.

I think you should either boycott this game, or tip as you normally would (i'm not saying how much/often you should tip, that is for you to decide, i just don't think you should change how you tip based on the rake -- unless the casino is paying the dealers more from the increased rake, which I doubt they are).

most forget that a tip is for GOOD SERVICE --- it is not a FORCED part of the game here in the states---
If the service is bad then NO you should not tip
If the pots are small heck no DO NOT TIP

Don Olney you are a Vegas nit. Do you see why? I don't like Vegas nits.

If you can't afford to tip when you win a pot, don't play.
