Cost of Not Toking
 

Hustling for tokes is something many dealers do routinely. Whether it works for them or not on a particular customer they forget quickly. I do not think a dealer has ever remembered whether I toked last time I played.

Sometimes after 1 have played a few hands without toking, the dealer will give me a gentle hint about sharing my good fortune by donating "something for the boys." I just keep smiling and act as if I do not hear or do not understand the hint. Usually the dealer stops hustling me and accepts the fact that I am one customer who has better uses for my money than giving it to a dealer.

Sometimes the hustle is not too subtle. In Germany, I am told, a dealer will shake the toke box in front of a winner to demand a toke. The most gross I personally have witnessed was at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, long before it became a Hilton property. While making a circular motion with his palm on his shirt pocket, the dealer opened his mouth and stuck out his tongue as if he were begging for food.
