    Caveat emptor. The dealer has only given an estimate, if he counts it down and then gives the incorrect answer you 'may' have some basis for complaint. However as the estimate is larger than the actual bet this complaint will fall on deaf ears.

    don't go by estimates.. if some1 shoves ask for a count, and don't do anything until you have a count.

    so you were obviously paying plenty of attention when u watched the dealer do the count and overshoot the mark by a lousy 10k

    Sure you have loadsof reason for a complaint.....firstly, star city dealers are not allowed to give a count of the pot during tournaments......though, maybe they can give a count of the players stack....so it may be worth finding out why they can do one but not the other.....

    End of the day though, they are your chips, your two cards and your seat, it's up to you to keep your eye on the ball....trusting a amateur poker dealer who gets paid $15 an hour with the fate of your life in a tournament you paid $330 for is a stupid amateur mistake. As if she gives a shit if she makes a mistake or not, and the sup will stand up for their dealers day in day out.

    Anyway....where are the fkn results for this opening event? Can't find them anywhere!, bring on high rollers today!!

    The dealers cant tell you the pot. If you ask them how much is the call, then they can cut down the stack and tell you.
