How often do you guys see dealers hustling for tips? I don't mind it when they do it in a "fun" way - which I usually see at craps, but sometimes they cross the line and that attitude bothers me. I was at a blackjack table this weekend when a new dealer came on, an older gentleman, and within a couple of minutes he started hustling. All of us on the table were down when one player started winning a bit and tipped the dealer a couple of times. He made a big noise about how she was setting an example for the rest of the table and looked at all of us. He even "joked" about it with the dealer at the table next to him. He kept bringing it up and it was annoying. We were all down, maybe we had made back some money after he came on but still in the red. He had just come on and was barely our dealer for 10 minutes. I was never betting anything lower than green chips, and at one point on a win of $50 he paid me in all reds. I asked him, "Why'd you give me reds" and he said "Well you might want to use them for something" and just gave me this stare for a few seconds. If he hadn't acted the way he did I would've tipped him. Just because he saw us not tipping for the 10 or 20 minutes he was dealing doesn't mean we don't tip. If he thinks I'm going to tip anytime I win a hand or even win a blackjack he is insane. Usually if the dealer is friendly I place a bet for them when I have a big bet on the table, and also when I walk from the table I usually tip whatever "small" chips I have left after coloring up. It can end up being a lot of tips for them. That guy just annoyed the hell out of me. I didn't end up tipping him the reds or anything at all. I gambled with them on top of my greens and cashed out after realizing I was even. All that dealer accomplished was turning someone who typically tips dealers a decent amount into someone who is beginning to regret it.
