Casino Personnel Staffing

The casino employs a basic staff of five people to service any craps table properly. There is a crew of four dealers, three of whom are always at the table, while a fourth, in rotation, is on a break. With this crew is a casino executive known as the boxman. The boxman is not part of the crew and may not work with a particular set of dealers all the time, while the crew is a functional unit, trained and kept together to work fluidly.

The Boxman
The boxman is a casino executive who is in charge of the craps table. He supervises play, and his word is final in any dispute arising between a player and a dealer.

Unlike the other personnel at the table, who wear house uniforms, the boxman generally wears either a suit or sports jacket. Also, unlike the dealers, he remains seated during the course of play.

Near him, under his constant supervision, are most of the casino chips for the games. His principal duty is to protect the casino's bankroll at the table, and he keeps both arms close to the stacks of chips under his supervision. The boxman's other duties are as follows:

Improve Your Play
That way you'll know how you do in each variety of poker. You don't necessarily have to keep track of table changes if you go from one game to the same game at the same limit, but if you do very well at one table and poorly at the other, you may want to log those results separately to help track the factors that make the difference.

You don't have to be as precise in your records about a home game, particularly a small-stakes social game, but you still ought to keep track of hours played and how you did. You might want to keep separate track of the games played and how you did in each for later analysis.

Do you, for example, generally lose in the games with many community cards, but do well in the various flavors of draw? You can attack this problem in a couple of different ways. First, try to improve your play in the community card games. You might fold earlier and more often, or perhaps play more aggressively when you have the best of it. Alternatively, you can avoid the troublesome game by calling some other form of poker when it's your turn to deal.
