I would always tip the robots, in order to remain on their good graces when they take over the world. It is very important to welcome our Robotic Overlords.

No wonder people always ask "where my sidekick is," referring to "the old man." Of course, this is also why everyone hates me. Sometimes I can't catch a break.

I usually just tip them a buck, if I win a bigger pot in relation to the limit im playing, I might tip 2 dollars.

I've never dealt but have worked in the industry and have had many conversations with dealers. With a $1 toke on a decent pot being more or less standard, dealer income has been stagnent over the years. During this period we have had some inflation, thus their ability to make a decent living isn't what it was.

The three or four extra hands per hour gained using shuffle machines makes up for part of this, but some players seem to tip less since "the machine" gave them the lucky cards.

Dealers also have to put up with customers such as Iris and Frenchy, so being a poker dealer isn't easy. That said, the best ones with the necessary tempermant do quite well, as they should.

Regards,

Rick

"The three or four extra hands per hour gained using shuffle machines makes up for part of this, but some players seem to tip less since "the machine" gave them the lucky cards."

Plus, at Commerce, the switchover, in the mid-limits section, from a time collection to raking the pot has meant almost all blinds now chop, so there are fewer flopped hands per hour than there would have been had they stayed with a time collection.

(However, there is also now a lot more walking, which means shorter handed games, which means more hands per hour.)

why should a crappy dealer get more tips just because he/she can work a machine?

why are you tipping crappy dealers in the first place?

I've got this guy up to 350 hands per hour, but he's still not getting a tip from me. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Default \"Tipping excessively\"- well, no [censored]!

I wasn't talking about "excessively"

and short-handed usually means smaller pots, which can also reduce tips.
