Player Left Without Counting His Money WWYD? (5 Viewers)

Nothing to add that hasn't already been said.
The loss is on him. As host I'm responsible for every cash in or cash out and I know that but I do the same, ask them to count it. They lose the right to dispute when they leave.
This. He could a dropped it on the ground at a gas station on the way home... But with only a few hundred and mostly $20's, that seems unlikely. My guess is he forgot buying in three times and thought he was only in the game for $1000.

Do a quick bank audit against the chips on the table so his buddy can later tell him the bank was square. And if it's off by $500, you can apologize to FNG and confirm with him it's okay to send the extra $500 home with his buddy or he can come pick it up.

I “kill the chips” by placing the barrels on the bills.

I like this.
 
I don’t care how much he bought in for, only his chip count at cash out matters. Chip count equals stack count, you’re all good. He had $-900 chips at cash out who gives a crap how much he bought in for.

Agreed. My point is, maybe he thought he was short $500 because he forgot about one of the buyins. That seems more likely than making a $500 counting error, twice, or losing/dropping/misplacing $500.
 
We had a player take $300 out of his wallet, put the $300 in his pocket and left his wallet on the table pregame. He grabbed some food, came back to the table and couldn’t find his $300. He started to get really upset and even accusatory until he found the money in his pocket (which took way too long).

We each took turns kicking him in the nuts until the game started.

Since people are sharing their accounting techniques, something I do by habit is count out the money on the table out loud in front of the leaving player, then say: "Do you agree?" The bills aren't scooped until we agree.

In the OP, the host counted twice, and the player was given the opportunity to verify, but it is not clear that the two ever counted together, like at a casino cage. This shared understanding is easily achievable. You're counting anyway!
 
First rule: Count your money before you leave…

With that being said, I would do a count of the chips in play and count the cash on hand. If there’s $500 too much, it’s his. If it’s on the money, it’s his mistake.
 
I’m betting $100 the money was spot on and the idiot either lost $500 somewhere or miscounted on the way home. OP counted it twice, please answer so we can stop speculating.
 
Simplest explanation is most often the one to go with - posting just so I can read what happened when an update comes
 
A lot of good advice here, but we can all agree

You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done

Right? ;)
Since becoming a regular poker player, I get a good laugh out of this song whenever I hear it. :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

I ALWAYS know within a few dollars how much I have in front of me, as well as a pretty good guess at what everyone else at the table has.

hilarious. I want to see the video on YouTube.
 
I just reread the OP - any asshole that isn’t willing to wait while I cash someone out can go fuck himself. Especially for $1900, but really for any amount.
I went back to reread after your post. I must have glossed over that the first time too.

ALWAYS stop the game if you are the dealer and host to cash someone out. Doesn’t take that long and is worth the delay to get it right.

Hopefully OP had it right but next time stop the game.
