BRICK AND MORTAR POKER ROOMS

In a brick and mortar room, there is additional abusive behaviors that we should not tolerate, at all, for any reason, and that is the abuse of the poker room staff. The staff includes the cocktail servers, the dealers, the management, and even the cleaning personnel.

Now if you are in a brick and mortar poker room, the dealer at your table has the authority to stop any of this behavior. If he/she does nothing, you may want to bring the behavior to his/her attention. If he/she still does nothing, you should call the poker room manager over and explain the situation.

Most brick and mortar rooms have a zero (0) tolerance for any type of offensive behavior. An excited utterance may be excusable, but continuation of such behavior is not.

Just because a tourist or regular player has been drinking, does not give them license to ruin everyone else’s playtime, not even, as stated above, in Vegas.

I believe that it is up to all poker players to show these abusive people that they are not the only ones that like to have a good time. We should stand up for what is right — abusive and offensive behavior at the poker table is not!
