"If you did throw it out there, you threw it in front of someone else." is one of my go-to lines when I'm certain the person I'm talking to is the person that didn't ante.

bolt2112, Motierre, Riverine, atrainpsu, AKQJ10, and Reducto, thanks for the responses about calculating pot-limit bet and pot sizes, that was helpful. I definitely need to just spend a couple of hourse drilling myself on some of the common numbers and some made up scenarios, and I am sure that will help a lot.

(Sorry I wasn't online yesterday afternoon/evening to respond. I usually don't post and run.)

Oh, and thanks YTF for the pro tip.

Happy Day! I just found out that a high-roller who everyone in the casino hated (except the owners) got perma=banned while I was on vacation.

Then I made a correct ruling that went against one of our most annoying players and he stormed off swearing and saying that he's never coming back.

Unfortunately I'm sure he'll be back by Friday.

Just meet him as he comes in on Friday and tell him he isn't allowed in because "Verbal is binding"

He actually came back today. I was tempted to kick him out immediately for his language.

Looks like I am actually going to go to dealer school next week. I have never dealt professionally, just a lot of bar poker. The emphasis of this school is WSOP prep and that is what I expect to be doing over at least the next year or so. After two circuits I may decide I don't enjoy it (or that I am not good at it) but I am pretty stoked that finally I am going to find out.

I'm a little older than most dealers....I don't come across as older but I have a few typical age-related challenges. Vision not great but should be fine from the box. Some difficulty hearing when there is a lot of background noise. And just not as mentally sharp as I was 30 years ago. But I think I am still able to be accurate and fast.

Time for a new challenge/experience!

My hearing is pretty bad, especially on one side. Have fun with it. First time someone mutters something as they toss in a single chip, cup your ear, lean towards them, and hit 'em with an extra loud, "EH????"

Second time: "Look, fellas, if this is a hearing test, I'm gonna fail it, every single time."

Somewhere along the way, someone will suggest this communication failure is all your fault. I tell them defensively, "I can hear you guys just fine--until it's your turn to act. Then, the volume cuts out." Usually, within five seconds, someone will mutter an action, and I follow up with, "See what I mean?"

Guy I work with is completely deaf in one ear. I don't know how he does it, or how it doesn't drive him cukoo. But he's a really laid-back guy, nothing seems to bother him, not even this.

Some time ago I went for a full hearing test. I find myself struggling to hear at work. I was positive that the test would show some level of hearing loss even if their was nothing that could be done about it.

I was surprised to be told that my hearing was within normal ranges a Ross all tested frequencies.

As a result when I can't them make a bet ... I know it's not me ... I've been tested.

Once worked for a floorman who loved telling players who didn't like his ruling, "If you had announced your action even HALF as loudly as you're speaking now, none of this would have ever happened."

It is very hot in the poker room this week.

An omaha player brought in a small portable fan and pointed it at the dealer.

Yes. I said an omaha player did something nice.

Is the world ending?

He was trying to blow smoke at the dealer

This sounds dumb but after so many years of only doing minimal mental math, as part of my dealer training I installed a "speed math" app on my phone. I've been drilling myself on very simple addition and subtraction problems. I am getting faster, of course, and I think this is going to be good for retraining my brain to do math, in general. Soon I will start doing the next level with multiplication and division. That will be perfect to "tune me up" for doing pot limit games.

I've had to learn to count by 8's and 12's, dealing $8-16 with a half-kill.

How do you count by 12 if you only have 10 fingers? Or do they let you deal with your shoes off?
