Jungleman Surprises Waitress With EV Tip!

The waitress can get a $20 tip or play a $200 flip.

Daniel “Jungleman” Cates and Lin Ji had lunch a few days ago. The two professional poker players tested the waitress to see if she made the right decision about the expected tip value.

Jungleman offered two options. The waitress could choose a $20 tip or bet and roll a $200 tip, which meant she had a 50% chance of winning $200, but also a 50% chance of getting nothing.

The waitress chose the second option, which represented the higher expected value. However, the waitress had to settle for a $100 EV tip as he lost the toss.
