"close to 3 pots per hour and therefore 3 dollars per hour in tips to dealers alone. "

Hi skp. Remember, I don't tip on "small pots" where there is a flop and only one bet. I pick up more than my share of those tip-free ones. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] My actual number is 2.20 per hour this year so far.

Actually, what you're thinking is too complicated. There are already totally computerized tables in Florida with no dealer, no cards, no chips. Everything is on a little screen. It's basically party poker with everyone in the same physical room.

Are you serious? Because I had thought about something like that before but came to the conclusion that nobody would want to play like that in a live setting. Weird.

As a dealer I have enjoyed our new shuffling machines to the fullest. I am now up to 20 hands every half hour vs 18 manually shuffling and benefit greatly with the tips. At first the players were skeptical of the shuffling machines but now it isn't even something that is discussed about on the table. My tips have increased due to more hands an hour. No player has griped to me about playing more hands and therefor having to tip more often =o)

My casino pool shares their tips, so it doesn't matter as the percentage of tip/pot I win is still the same.

But even though the machine does all the shuffling, it's the dealers who have to keep the game in line, not act prematurely in dealing board cards, and to keep the flow of the game going fast. This still doesn't affect the ratio of tip/pot IMHO.

Yes. There have been several posts about them in the B&M forum. I haven't seen these myself, though. I believe they are at the Hard Rock in tampa.

I think if tipping is affecting earn rate significantly enough for someone to complain about it, they need to move up a level.

Without independant dealers, do we have b&m games at higher levels? Does it affect the poker boom of the last few years?

Wait, are they going to make robots that play the trombone?

This reminds me of that Saturday Night Live commercial for robot insurance where the old people were being attacked by robots.

Tipping excessively is like throwing away thousands a year for a professional player. This effects me significantly, but if it doesn't effect you, feel free to send me a check. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Thanks!

Many dealers just don't get this, or they wouldn't fart around when in the box. This includes not paying attention, dealing slowly, arguing with players, fumbling with change, pulling bets in strangley (or not at all), and talking. Many say they are efficient, but are full of it. Granted, the dealers around me are some of the best, for the most part, but there is always room for improvement. Still, in a place like a casino, it seems obvious to me that they would want to hustle for as much money possible, just like everyone else does. I also think that pooling tips hurts this efficiency.

As for the dealers you work with (probably in Colorado by your elevation location), I did experience good dealers up there, and they seem to get tipped very well. This was five years ago up in Blackhawk.
