word type: person
- The person dressed in a snazzy bow tie at a live poker table that shuffles and deals the cards.
- The person playing at a poker table designated as the dealer with a button who does not actually deal out the cards.
Dealers at a poker table work long hours and typically make terrible tip money at most low stakes poker games. They are also the source of unfair berating from poker players bemoaning their own bad plays or bad beats. Typically a poker player will toke a dealer $1 for every small pot won and more for bigger pots.
