In cash games it’s customary to tip the dealer after winning a pot, and you’ll often hear the phrase “red bird down,” when a red $5 casino chip is dropped into the toke box.

It’s something that doesn’t happen in tournament play because the betting units have no cash value, but Will “the Poker Monkey” Souther (Biloxi, MS) is looking to change that.

Souther is a circuit grinder who has $650,000 in career tournament earnings and happily creating good will with the hard working dealers.
