in a 2k pot, I tip 20$ and still feel pretty bad about it. in germany 2% is expected and actually you might get thrown out if you dont tip enough for a long period of time.

but I guess they rake less over here

When I said something to him "you know you were first to flip," he said that he couldn't hear because his earphones were in. This is someone who has been playing cards for years, and he had been able to hold conversations perfectly fine with his earphones in, so I gave a sarcastic "uh huh" to him. He immediately got red in the face and shouted "are you calling me a liar?" I kind of shrugged, and that was also pretty much the end of it.

Hmm...yes u are a d-bag. First you butt in the hand where you weren't involved and were clearly wrong in that situation. Then you called it an "angle" and put it in the beginning of your post to set up a negative perception of the villain. Ohh and "Do you have a problem with xxx" sounds great in the setting where you can't get your balls broken. What if he does? What can YOU do about it? You sound like a little p()ssy who feels safe in the poker room and loves to pump his chest while risking nothing. DIE !!!

So you think it's ok to get involved in something that doesn't involve you (an "angle" where villain doesn't show his cards first...even though that isn't even an angle, it's just being kind of a jerk) but you get mad when that same player puts himself into YOUR business at another time?

Yeah that makes you a bit of a d-bag. Seems like you were just looking for a way to get into it with this guy. And for all anyone knows this guy wouldn't have said a word in this situation if you hadn't gotten into his business before.

clearly u are the villain from the story no?

OP,

i think it's clear villain was a bigger douche, and depending on the circumstances it's either more douchey to engage someone like that or it's douchey to let his douchey actions go un-confronted. you probably should have ignored his tipping comment.

all,

as regards to the tipping thing. in games where you might get uninvited if you tip "small", tipping a larger amount should not be considered an issue of fairness but a cost for being in the game. i think it's pretty ridiculous for dealers to be making stripper wages. in big games that OP plays in, there could be more than 10 >$1000 pots per hour. tipping something like %2 results in just ludicrous hourly wages. it may be a prudent thing to do for other reasons, but not fairness.

Nothing wrong with the way you handled it. None of his business what you tip and I would have confronted him and given his friends a ration if they joined in. He and his friends sound like they enjoy ganging up on someone. That's probably why he acted the way he did -- he knew they'd back him up.

Another reason to dislike no limit. Everybody is always on tilt.

Just stop being a nit, and throw that big 5-spot out there. I'll tip $5 on a 200-300 dollar pot at the 1/2NL table.

Give people less to bitch about, and they will stop bitching! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Asking for change to tip a dealer on a 2k pot is pretty cheap not matter were your from.
