Calling for Merit-Based WSOP Dealer Compensation

52 Signatures Goal: 1,000

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.

More info on this petition and it's author available here: at the Cardplayer Lifestyle poker blog.

    The top dealers won't keep coming back if they aren't rewarded for skills

    Having been a dealer for 20 years beginning in 1977 and excelling at my profession, I support this by all means. I was very good at what I did and wish that proper compensation had been the norm back then. Since it wasn't, there are few things I would support more now than having great dealers paid appropriately. Break in dealers should not be paid as much as the excellent ones as they haven't earned that right. To keep great dealers working for you, paying them appropriately is the best way to keep them motivated and their attitudes great. It is also an incentive for novice dealers to improve. Hundred percent support from me!
