Hi - I've done some research but can't seem to find some of my questions.
I am looking to play 1/2 NL or and tournaments at around $100 buy in.
1 - Tipping. I've read that it is customary to tip, even when you lose. When is the right time to tip? When you win a pot? What about when you are losing? Do you just tip when you leave the table? How much? 1- 2 Dollars? Do you tip with cash or chips? Can you tip the waitress with chips?
2 - What if you don't have the exact denomination of chips required to call a bet? How do you get change? i.e. To call a $2 bet but all you have is a $5 chip. What do you do to get change?
3 - Is it true that you can only touch the card with one hand?
4 - What do you tell the dealer when you would like to get up and leave the table? "I would like to cash out"?
5 - in a 1/2 NL game.. what is a good stack to buy in with? 25 times the big blind?
Thanks for your help.
