I won a O/8 tournament years ago @ Foxwoods ($2300) and didn't toke because of my statement above. Would have toked if they would have keep within themselves.
That's the main reason IF I ever win the BBJ @ Foxwoods....wouldn't give them a dime !
Yes my first post was sarcastic in nature, I do apologize as my sense of humor is very dry and if you are used to humor requiring hammers or someone tripping over an ottoman, or a laugh track.... anyway never mind.
In small tournaments I usually tip 10% or a little more of profits
(depending on quality of dealers and staff) the dealers are not generally given much of a cut, if anything, from the tournament juice especially since small tournaments are breakeven events for casinos at best and often cost the casino more to run than they drop (hourly wages, drinks, snacks etc.) BTW if you are trying to make a consistent profit in low buy in weekly and daily tournaments, and you think that throwing the dealers a $10 or $15 tip to chop up 22 ways or whatever is unreasonable you are a jackass.
If you are playing in tournaments where the payout is in 5 and 6 digits cutting back to 2% to 5% range is fine no one ever said anywhere that you should be throwing down $20,000 tips on a $100,000 win. Common sense is applicable.
really though if you are going to tip $7 on a $750 win, a lot of dealers and floor would rather see you just be a straight up stiff because it really is looked at the same way as leaving 30c for the waitress because the service sucked....
