Calling for Merit-Based WSOP Dealer Compensation
Dealers who excel at their job ought to be compensated better than those less adept at the craft.
The status quo at the WSOP, whereby all dealers are paid the same amount regardless of experience, expertise, ability to deal just a few or multiple types of poker, and overall excellence must end.
This petition calls for the WSOP to reconsider it's current policy and hiring practices, and to reward dealers based on merit, effective immediately.
While players ought to continue tipping dealers based on their general amicability, it behooves us as a player community to stand up in support of all dealers being contractually rewarded based on their performance.
To that end, we support the development of qualitative and quantitative measures/goals by the WSOP, such that dealer performance can be properly evaluated and incentivized moving forward.
