Cost of Tipping for a Card Counter
is the cost of tipping?
Tipping is a personal decision and Blackjack dealers are not well
paid. But it is important to realize the cost associated with tipping.
One popular method of tipping is to tip all or part of the Blackjack
bonus. For example, if you have a $25 bet, the payoff for a Blackjack
is $37.50. Suppose we tip the $2.50 change. Or tip 50 cents after
a $5 Blackjack. This seems like a small amount. But look at the
chart. The green area is the SCORE that you give up by tipping this
change. It is quite easy to tip away your entire advantage.
