going to first cash game @ casino, tips?

Postby terrenceh » Mon Jun 18, 2012 1:02 pm

Have been playing online poker for quite sometime, I also get involved in cash games at home...but this home game is amongst relatives and friends only so the atmosphere can be different from casino

with that said, I'll be going to try cash game @ RWS soon
any tips or etiquette to know?
do you tips the dealer when winning? how much?
what time usually the table opened @ RWS?

Good that Singapore dont have tipping culture, i never ever ever tip in macau and singapore.

Act in turn, be nice to dealers, announce your bets and run good u will be fine.

hey thanks for the information

surprised to hear about no tipping culture to dealer. How about the drink server, do you usually tip him/her in casino?

in regard of cash game, are there a lot of new players coming in everyday? A friend told me that it's baccarat - pontoon who are the stars of the show....blackjack,poker,slot not so much

Unless I make a S$1000 pot I do not give the dealer a tip - the 5% rake (max $50) is already grinding us away slowly with many of us not realizing it. So far with 4 nights of playing I only tipped the dealer once and the tea lady once - I need a constant fix of hot Chinese tea and I think she handed me more than 20 cups a night. Even though she is paid to do her work, an occasional tip goes a long way to get your drinks fast & regularly.

I will say that RWS a reasonable place to start your "cash games ventures".

My advice is bring at least 3x ur buyin to be prepared for early badbeat.Its unwise to bust early and go home considering rake and levy :) observe which are the recreational and regular players to maximize your profit (equals to having fun). Dont be afraid to enquire any doubts you have on the table rules.

I dont tip the dealers.Only servers. You would be surprised if they decide to share their thoughts on some players in the room :)
