i was playing at mgm on a week day nite very slow alot of bj tables open. i was playing 100 - 500 a hand. i was in the middle of the shoe and i guy wanted to sit and buy in for 200$ and i asked him nice if he would mind waiting for the shoe to end. they left and sat down at the table next to me to play as i said it was empty in the casino. the pit criiter comes and say you cant ask them to to sit out as its not a private table ,only if they ask you if you mind if if come can you answer. i told him i have no problem if they came in i would have been happy to color up and move on it was just curtisy and that was it. he was kinda rude when addressing situation.
