One dealer tells him he can't have his stack 6 deep. There is a "five deep rule" that says you can't have chips more than five stacks away from you. She explains it is to ensure players to his left and right may see his cards.
What happened afterwards was relatively entertaining. off the clock floorman has never heard of this rule before. He calls over multiple floorman to find out if this rule exists. obviously no one takes him seriously because he asks in a joking tone and we're probably sitting at the funnest table in the house.
off the clock floorman points out the guy in seat 2 who also has a chip stack that is six deep. the dealer say that's ok because he's sitting on the edge. One floorman also said, "you don't know about this rule because you never had that much chips in front of you! ha ha ha"
Please tell me this was Mike. Middle aged asian floorman? He is the nuts. Always good for the game, will call you down light and buys drinks for anyone.
