A real Scot would've produced a tin of Tennents Super from his sporran, smashed it over his own face like Stone Cold (without wasting a drop) and ran the clown off his own manor (to think again )

Re: The Gazzy Experience

The story you posted I don't understand why what you did helps the dealer which is seemingly your reason for doing it. Yes you may have tipped more but you could also do that quietly. Sticking up for a dealer when the floor comes over in situations like that I understand but you do it in an really bad way.

It may have good intentions but it's so poorly implemented and when you're clearly a relatively smart guy it comes across as you needing to flex/make live poker more interesting for yourself.

Re: The Gazzy Experience

Couple stories from the felt

1.

A middle aged man is table changing and as he gets up he knocks over the side drink table and it goes flying. He then proceeds to continue to his new table as though nothing happened. A young American guy at my table exclaims “wow what an *******” and some table banter goes back and forth about it. The man starts coming back after the staff picked up the table and is hovering closely around my table muttering “somebody call somebody *******...” then says something along the lines of “a ****ing ******* call someone a ****ing *******” to which the young American repeats that saying. Then the middle aged man starts saying how he could have been hurt and wants to take this conversation to the parking lot. Keep in mind he was like 45-60 years old and roughly 5’7.

2.

Playing in a 5/10 game short handed with two asians who are completely donking around (one barely knows the rules). Literally saw one of them cold call a 3bet from SB and then called the 4bet and called off a pot sized jam on KQ4dd with 109ss...( I saw his hand when he peeled his cards).

So after a while he gets into a hand with a young ish Indian fellow and the pot is maybe ~500 while the board ran out so they both had a wheel. The Indian guy (wanna be reg) tables his hand J10o and says “board”. The aforementioned asian says something and points at the board as if to say ahhhh were chopping and goes to table his hand but the cards flipped and were about to go facedown. So I reached out instinctively to help turn them faceup because I didn’t think he was trying to muck (which he wasn’t). The dealer chops the pot.

Now the Indian guy turns to me and says “who the **** are you to put your hand out like that?!” At first I’m taken aback because I thought it was clear that he was not trying to muck. Basically Indian guy goes off on me for 2 minutes telling me to let the asian guy muck if he wants etc. Very slimy behaviour - but somewhat understandable to let people have the responsibility of reading the board on their own. However I thought in this scenario that wasn’t the case. Especially given the Indian guy announced board when he tabled his hand and the asian guy wasn’t actually trying to muck.

The Indian guy is just pissed you cost him the chance to scum his way into taking the whole pot.

It's hard for a 70 year old to change his manners, but we can make the dealer have a less ****ty day by doing that.

These would be my uninformed two takes on it as well, although it's a tough spot.

The old man is who he is. He's not gonna change, no matter what you or the floor say or do, and if anything your line is just going to enrage him even more for the future beratings he'll no doubt hand out.

I was kinda in a similar situation once. Idiot is an idiot, always has been, always will be, nothings gonna change that, and is getting in this idiot discussion with the dealer that is now beginning to drag on. Dealer is dealing with it as best and professionally as he can and trying to bring it to a resolution without involving the floor. Instead of engaging the idiot (pointless, right?) I simply began tipping the dealer every 30 seconds or so as the discussion went on. I kinda think this method of simply dealing with the dealer only (a tip, an afterwards "I sometimes don't know how you do this job" out of earshot, a simple gesture of having his back while not directly engaging the idiot, etc.) is probably best.

Re: The Gazzy Experience

Always stick up for the dealer, shame he didn't see him get stacked, though I am sure he will have heard about it later.

I think I would never escalate an issue unnecessarily at the detriment of the dealer, especially if the dealer is just trying to move on, but in this case, the dealer specifically called the floor and was trying to prove his case to the floor, THEN I think Gazzy is 100% in the right to back him up. If you stay silent then, you're basically leaving him cold.

If the dealer is trying to move on though, I would just say a quick comment to help deescalate, and maybe throw them a tip later to show appreciation (but not confrontationally unless I really dislike the guy).

Re: The Gazzy Experience

Just now at the commerce:

Dealer deals all the cards and the action is about to start. Dealer proceeds to drop the deck out of his hand while simultaneously exposing roughly 15 cards. I’m like wtf?! Misdeal. Dealer says no I’m going to shuffle them it won’t matter. I’m like no that doesn’t make sense. Half the table is like but he’s going to shuffle them it won’t matter! Dealer literally shuffles the cards he dropped and continues with the action as though nothing happened and the hand takes place...

Also the floor men are spineless for the most part
