what do you do when someone asks....
  • for you to wait until the next shoe.

    when you are jumping in and out of a mid deal.

    i have had this happen to me a couple of times now.
    sometimes i just say, "no, i want to play now"
    and other times i cower down like a whooped dog.

    just wondering what you guys do.
  • First of all, why are you jumping in and out like a wet dog? Got DEXTERITY PROBLEMS??? lol, j/k

    I usually wait, since I'm a nice guy like that... but too many of those MOFO's dont know that it doesn't matter one lick or the other since all of them dont know how to play in the first place (just got back from casino)
  • Say, "No. Thank You. That's ok" and smile. Then sit down and play. Tip the dealer with your first bet.

    Do not argue with these guys or try to explain how ignorant they are. It will just make it worse. They're idiots and others at the table know this. But if anyone loses even one hand, you will get the blame and the moron will be the hero. Be strong.

    You don't go to casinos to make friends with morons.

    ???

    Why should we TIP THE DEALER just for sitting down & playing at someone's table? Makes no sense to me.
  • Make friends withe dealer real quick. It just makes playing at the table more pleasant.
  • Nah, but I still see no use of tipping the dealer just for sitting your happy ass at the table. People should only tip the dealer for GOOD SERVICE, i.e. dealing you really good hands and like the other post said, 1 every 20 hands at MOST if you're winning!

    Besides, dealer cant stop you from sitting down at a table with everyone there but a spot open... all he can do is not talk to you but so what it's not like you knew the guy in the first place or will ever have ties with him, you know what im saying?!

    The dealer most certainly can stop people from sitting down, even with an empty spot. You haven't played very much if you've never seen it happen. If the place is packed, they usually won't do it, but if seats are available at other tables, I've seen dealers tell people to go to one of those tables instead.
  • Oh I've played a lot, maybe more than any 21 year old actually... but, on what grounds could the dealer stop a player from wanting to PLAY on an open-spot on the table given that there is no "No Midshoe Entry" sign?? It's just like saying dealers can prevent us from HAND INTERACTION which I do a lot... which reminds me, got into a confrontation with a dealer who was telling me that I cant interact with the players at the table when I was trying to pay him even money for his BJ instead of the dealer and other hand interaction plays.... got his ass in trouble since they have no reason to tell us what to do or how to "interact" at tables.

    Stupid jerk!!!
  • In Nevada at least, the casinos are considered private clubs, which is what gives them the right to refuse to let anyone play, for any reason. Obviously, the most typical reason you'll see is because someone is belligerent, threatening, asleep at the wheel, or just plain too drunk to be out in public.

    Seeing somoeone 86'd for cheating is very rare, and I have never seen an advantage player tossed. Just lucky I guess.

    By the same token (or check as it were), a dealer can ask a player to leave a table, but my experience anyway, is that a floor supervisor has the right to make the final call on that. I doubt that most experienced dealers would take that on without being fairly certain her boss would back her up.

    As for jumping in and out of shoes and mid shoe entries.... well in additon to wanting to win, I like to have a good time and at least be friendly with people at my table and always ask before jumping in. If someone is on a streak, we all know that my play isn't going to affect ther next hand, but if they think it might, i don't mind waiting. And they say gamblers aren't superstitious! And event though i know it doesn't matter, when someone walks up. plays 1 hand and leaves, it still pisses me off- I can't help it.

    Happy holidays everyone- may your days be filled with family, health and happiness, and your nights with aces- whether it be at bj or poker.

Howdy, Stranger!
