    Thanks for the excellent video and discussion... Should be watched closely by all dealers/sellers and then showed to employees as well. Cheers, RickO

    Why didn’t the dealer put the money together after it was counted out? Inexperience due to age?

    I was taught by a mentor early on in my dealing days that if you are the seller you should be the last one to count the money and the last one to handle the money. All the sleight of hand and other hustles are not new but unfortunately they have to be learned by each new generation, too often the hard way.

    I don't know if it's his real name, but his name tag says "Harold" I believe.

    Who's the guy in the green sitting at the table?
    You would have thought he would have had a good view of the slight of hand, but again we don't see everything all the time.
    The lead guy was slick and it worked, he quickly went to shake his hand (blocking and focus the dealers attention) then sat down.
    Too bad the dealer didn't do another quick count and put the money away before handing over the coins.

    After the money was counted out and laying on the table, it makes no sense for the buyer to start picking it up. That should have been a red flag.

    Sometimes I think that animals are smarter than humans, animals would never allow the dumbest one to lead the pack

    And a signal to the dealer to recount the money. I've had dealers take money from me without recounting and while I appreciate that they trusted me, I really would prefer that they count it themselves in order to confirm that I didn't make a mistake. I'd really hate to leave the table and have them find out later I was wrong and think instead that I was trying to cheat them.
