Good morning, my Cherubs!
Today's lesson is to keep you "in the know", poker-fashionable, and in your accustomed style of gentlemen and gentlewomen - who are never embarrassed about not being sure of the proper action or words in any poker situation -- whether playing online or at the land tables.
In all poker circles, it is considered unethical and close to cheating, to split a pot rather than have a showdown. There are no partnerships or deals made at the poker table!
At land tables, it is traditional for the winner of the pot to toss a small tip to the dealer. It is fair to give a $1 tip for a pot won unless it is very small.
Dealers are not paid a large amount of money. In fact, the casino industry has left it up to the players at the table to help compensate dealers.
Now you can feel at ease and sure of yourself in such situations, as all Poker Crushers always should! Your Guru is very proud of the class you show wherever you play! Word gets around and reputations count for a lot in the world of poker. There is no better rep than being considered a class act!
So thank you! Every one of you took your poker ettiquete classes seriously!
