Remember to read all tabled hands, it is your job to find the winner even if the player does not see it.

Mechanical Skills. Technique! The ability to shuffle and deal without exposing cards, handle chips, and the like. The shuffle procedure is shuffle-box-shuffle-shuffle, and remember to always clear your hand.

Ability to control the Game. Being able to maintain the game pace. That is, the ability to keep the game moving, prevent out-of –turn actions, avoid unnecessary delays, without rushing either yourself or the players. Remember, always use an open hand—never point—at a player when it is their turn to act.
