Thanks for posting this. I've been thinking of learning how to deal better lately. This will save me from intently staring at the dealer in the casino. Which I actually did on Tuesday this week, but it didn't really help. But I'm sure I gave off a weird enough vibe. :)


Estimated practice time necessary to become smooth at it: 10 - 20 hours.

Hmmm... I feel obligated to check out these videos to critique them!

I'm not a big advocate of watching casino dealers - having trained a few and seen a lot of them, quality varies widely. You may pick up others' bad habits.

I've been known to tip a dealer just because they're being sharp and doing things properly... it causes momentary confusion when someone not in a pot tips... then gratitude from the dealer and acknowledgement/respect from the players.

Side note: I wholeheartedly approve of people wanting to improve their dealing skill. It's good for you, and good for your game. And if they don't cover it in the videos - learn to shuffle properly, too. Saves your cards and saves your hands.

They definitely cover shuffling, bank management, cheque handling, buy-ins and color outs, and other basics. New videos will include sidepots and other topics not yet covered.
