Me personally, would tip about 300. Tipping the amount of the buy in would work as well. Lets see. You won 2800. So....10 percent doesn't sound like a bad deal. My final answer would be, anywhere from 150-420. 3000-350(200 for buy in and 150 for tip) leaving you with 2650. Sounds fair to me. The poker room guy might try to hustle a tip out of you as well. I would personally tip just the dealers but yet again, I can't remember the last time I won a tournament.

Regardless of what you may be told, dealers work hard for their money and like most service industry people, their incomes depend on tips. Many dealers get stiffed at tournament time. Most dealers appreciate any tips you give. A tip of 3 to 5 % of your net win is appropriate, in my view. Buy-in for $100. win $1100. tip $30 to $50. IF the majority of the dealers provided good service. Any cash win in a tournament deserves tip consideration. I have played tournaments where for $5, (or some minimal amount) the player receives additional tournament chips. This money goes to the tournament staff, including dealers. I will factor this in when determining the tip and reduce accordingly. I have stiffed the whole crew, to personally hand $10. to several dealers that "deserved" it. tip more, tip less- it is up to you! While you are probably playing the tournament for fun and recreation, the dealers are dealing to make a living.

If they are taking out $7 per person AND 3%, then you might not need to tip any more. You can see based on the amount of people in the tournament how much they've already received.
