Default Staff shortages at Crown

http://www.news.com.au/national/thie...-1226207683824

I wasn't really focussing on the main part of this story, rather the part about staffing at Crown.

"A Crown source, who wished to remain anonymous, said since opening in 1994 the number of dealers a supervisor had to monitor had climbed from four to 24.
"One pit boss looks after 48 tables. It's absolutely bananas," he said."

Great news for APs!

They don't really need to look out for too many AP's on 6:5 CSM games now do they!!!

Well, not those ones, no. I was thinking a few others towards the Atrium end. :P

The last thing on a Crown supervisor's mind is detecting APs. The majority of them are Higher Duty (HD) dealers. This means they are just dealers but accept a slightly higher pay rate to supervise as well. They receive no training in advantage play detection. They're as likely to know about how to beat blackjack than the guy sitting next to you.

Yeah, my friend and I once hit up a table with a dealer who had HD duties. We counted his table whilst discussing his job with him and walked away with a tidy profit. The whole time he told us about BJ being purely about luck. I think he was oblivious to counting. The following night he was there again, this time as a supervisor. And again, he had a nice friendly chat with me as I Wonged in and out of his pit making $$$. Ignorance is bliss.
