I think I might have to switch back to Table Games if I want to get my foot into Vegas from out of state this time of year, as there are just so many more open positions for that.



Also applied to some in Florida on a lark, but not sure if I even want those gigs, most of them are in high COL areas.


Excalibur and Mirage for table games are hiring. Good luck making a good living out of those places.
Aria is hiring poker dealers.
If you wanna eat anything besides ramen noodles every week, stay away from Downtown.

It seemed like tons of places had openings for Table Games, which makes sense, the departments are huge compared to poker. I did apply at Aria, that was the lone MGM property that was hiring for poker. Yeah, I've heard some less than stellar things about downtown, but I have a fair amount of savings, I just want to get my foot in the door in the area.

It was just a conversation starter.

Yes, it is a circuit stop for one of the tours. And it will be a mixture of tournament and cash.

I don't know the break schedule but I expect it will be reasonable in that regard, just long days.

I'm not super worried about it but I know it won't be easy, and I was wondering what would be the most difficult thing about it, as a new dealer.

You're gonna be lousy because you're new, not because of the 12 hours. Don't sweat it. They KNOW you're new. Their expectations are the same as mine.

True enough.

That said, the 12-hour days seem like more of a mystery than the being-new problems I know I will have.

Dealing because you play every hand to the river. When playing even if you're completely aggro you still fold pre sometimes and can check out mentally for a bit.

Depending on the definition of ‘good’ I’d disagree. Playing good is difficult. You have to process a lot of information to know what the best play is. Dealing doesn’t involve many decisions if at all.

I think it’s actually an interesting discussion but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Agreed. When playing, I start to mentally check out at around 6 hours, and it's even tougher if it's at night and I am getting tired. When dealing, I am constantly moving and getting tired is never an issue unless I got basically no sleep the day before. Just give me a few breaks to get some water and fruit and I can easily deal 12 hours quickly and without mistakes.

Just set a record which may never be broken:

Called two string bets on one street.

do 5card PLO games ever run with more than 6 players in the US? what's the protocol on running it twice if there's 8 players dealt in?

Protocol will be room dependent. In my room if 8 players are dealt in and they want to run it twice preflop we simply burn one card and put up two boards without any other burn cards.
