How do you cope with drunks at the tables?

Not a drinker myself(who am I kidding? ha!) - and for all you non-drinkers out there, what do you do when ppl next to you start being obnoxious drunks?

I settle in. Nothing more entertaining than some drunken idiot making a fool of himself.

It's all fun and games until they vomit on me, though. Then I get up and leave.

I can't say I've ever encountered an obnoxious drunk at a table, most of the drunk folks I've played with have been of the happy variety. I think this speaks to a) how awesome Vegas is and b) how efficient the staff at the casinos are at removing the troublemakers.

If I ran into one I'd just leave the table, unlike obnoxious smokers a mean drunk is more likely to punch you in the face if you make some comment.

Order them another round and tip the CW, then watch as they make bad moves. Some fun times just drunk people watching.

Since I'm drunk at the tables maybe I don't notice but I've seen pit bosses have people removed if things get a little to much out of hand but never seen anyone really have an issue with a really drunk player. I've knocked over my fair share of beers but that is about it.

I am not a drinker myself, but have been at many tables where it is more lively because of the drunks. If they start becoming overly obnoxious, I just find a different table. That is the beauty of Vegas. There are so many options if you just want to get up and find another table.

If they are mean I move tables. If not, I try to out drink them.
