Yes , absolutely sure noone wants to think of live poker , when they have to deal with these everyday isolation problems and the dangers due to corona virus . These days , online poker has shown its great value , importance and contribution to the game , thanks to online poker players can still grind , try to win their poker earnings or even big lifechanging money , despite the ipossibility to play their favorite live casino games or tournaments .
Also there are restrictions in movement , airports , transportation , so players probably wouldn't be able to travel to Las Vegas to play in WSOP.com , online , all tournaments .
It might seem like science fiction fantasy scenario But think , If this series was actually possible to be played in one major poker room ,like PartyPoker or 888 or PokerStars , many would take part , much more than other online smaller poker rooms , but still many would not have the possibility to play , they would be excluded , every poker room is not in all countries .
But then there's ACR , lol , ,, which might not be so big/great room as the prerefered , but it is still big , it offers poker almost everywhere in the USA , also in MOST counties (amost every state ??) around the world , much more countries than every other poker room , although I think I saw in the recent past a video saying they departed from some countries cause players there couldn't deposit That's normal . If they want to find a online way by all means for this series to be played out , I would recommend without precaytions or hesitation the Americas Cardroom (ACR) , for sure , we could say then that the winner of such a wsop online tourney is a world champion
Not that this is possible to happen , just saying what I would like to see If it's true that this corona virus outbreak will last 2 years , the same as most huge influenza virus outbreaks in the world the last century , then probably not even next year WSOP will happen , they might have to find a way to deal with this fact

The coronavirus pandemic has turned Las Vegas into a ghost town. Nightlife and its eccentric tourist attractions they were stopped until the politicians decide to start again. I have two neighbors from the neighborhood who are in this city and took pictures. It's incredibly empty.

I believe this crisis will end someday soon ,at least this is what I hope for. Cause if a serious pandemic can last up to two years , just imagine this chaotic situation to go on for two more years , i don't want to imagine this scenario at all !!!!! Bad for our everyday lives , our pshychology , our '' pockets '' , bad for all the businesses , among them casinos and sportbetting companies
I just wonder , if they hadn't taken all these measures , what would be the condition two months ago , now, in 5-10 months ?? Milions more would have died ??? Some more thousands ?? Is it really so deadly , that millions or hundreds of millions could die?? I see from seasonal flu 1-4 millions in two years can die during a pandemic . I have never heard governments to take so serious measures for seasonal flue , just to save some of these 1-4 millions . I am just sceptical ....... Maybe I don't know how to read the statistics, the viruses' history ,I don't know ...Or maybe it's one more proof that this world is full of countless sheep , and some dogs to watch them , watch them until their ''time'' comes ...
