When I was at Parx the dealer acted like she didnt know what was happening and the pit boss was telling her what to do.I had just put my money in the DC and the guy rolls an 11 and she was going to pay me but the boss said I lost.I assumed they taught you ever game at dealer school or maybe they just hired this lady without any kind of training?
Obviously / apparently you encountered a ” novice ” dealer - one just fresh out of Dealer School - who was getting his/her cherries busted at the table -
Stop and think for a moment -
On the player side - we are only required to be responsible for our own bets -
If we do not know what is trhe correct increment that we need to place on the table to increase our odds bets, our place bets, our odds on the come bets -
Who do we ask -
Surely not the moron next to you -
Certainly not the boxman ( NOW THAT WE KNOW WHO HE IS ) -
Alas - It is the dealer -
The dealer has to be able in an instant - be able to calculate how much money is needed to take your wager - ” Up a Unit ” - or to know how much in needed to ” Press It ” -
All this needs to occur quickly and seemlessly - as any errors would cause a delay in the game - which translates to the casino as lost $$$$$$$$$$$$ -
The dealers task is something that I do not think that I could perform consistantly and without error not for the eight hour shift that are required to work - I doubt if I could make it through 1 roll of the dice !
Everyone has a beginning - where they need to be led by the hand and shown the difference from ” book sense ” to ” street smart ” -
My opinion -
