Always use the tube of color that is furthest from the center.
If you use your right hand to pay the right side of the table then use the right side of the rack, the same goes with left hand.
Start with the outside tubes and work your way in. You can move cheques around to make it look cleaner.
Each tube holds one type of denominations. Notice how the smaller denominations are on the outside and the larger denominations
are in the middle where the dealer is able to protect them better. Never store your cheques in an assorted order, always reorganize
the rack so it is proper. Put a separator in between each stack of 20 cheques of the same color, making the rack easier to read.
How you pick up the cards is important. There will be times when a player will argue a hand and you will have to call over
the Floor to run back the cards. In order for him to do his job correctly you had to do your job and pick the cards up in
the precise order. A dealer will never run back the cards on their own.
Start the procedure by picking up the dealers cards
first so they are on the top of the stack; that way when the dealer’s cards are run back the dealer’s cards are the first
ones out. At some casinos they will want the dealer’s cards to be on the bottom of the stack or the last cards out so make
sure you know your houses rules. Then, starting at the furthest hand to the right, pick up the cards right to left using your
thumb and forefinger to catch them as you slide in the direction of the cards. Hold the cards angled so that the bottom left
corner of the card sweeps underneath the next card, moving diagonally. Place the cards in the discard rack.
Because the cards will be face down on a handheld deck you need to know the procedure for picking them up. Start with the player
on your right and then go left. Grab the tops of the cards and flip them from top to bottom. Do not roll the cards over with the
deck hand. Lay the cards in front of their bets in the correct fashion and then complete the “Take & Pay Procedure” before
going on to the next hand.
When the shoe is finished take the remaining cards out and turn the un-dealt portion of the deck 180 degrees and place it in a
random spot in the discard rack.
