Tags: 2020 wsop, coronavirus

The organizers of the World Series of Poker has finally succumbed to the inevitable, postponing this year's largest, richest and most prestigious poker event in the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Why would any casino need these glass/plastic curtains or separators between players , this is an exaggaration imo . and more expensive solution . Just enforce the use of mask , or even gloves , by all players . Also use these
high body temperture detectors at the entrance door of every casino , so the people infected or the more serious ill people to be identified and be denied the entrance to this facility . It;s really easy . Also use mashines , airconditions or whatever , to clean and refresh the air inside the casino . Is it so hard to do rhis ?????

You don´t understand my friend antonis321. They will use ALL that measure of safe. The player will be controlled on his temperature before to registered, they have to use a mask -like the croupier and all the customers there, they have to wash their hands in all the breaks and, surely, they have to have a 70% alcohol bottle near of them. That cost have to be asummed by they and the poker´s room. The cost of health, at least in my country, is assumed by all the people trough taxes!

They have so many ways to control the spread of this virus in a closed place like a casino . Masks , gloves , some distance between players , for sure social distance between players on the breaks of tournaments , this thermo detector for body temperature , why not impose the players to have made some examinations the previous 2-3 days (also a little exaggerated) , alcohol antimicroviobic or anteseptic liquids for the hands at the entrance/exits of the casino , filters for the air inside the casino rooms , other precaution measures , why have these glass/plastic things ??

This is crazy . I think by touching your neck , eyes , mouth , nose with your hands you migth get infected . If you use masks and gloves , isn't the risk minimised ?? Almost to zero ???
So why not open casinos ??? Or other business ?? if the use of these protection measures is COMPULSORY , not OPTIONAL , everywhere !! Question Question Question

Crazy exaggerations these days Blink

They even forbid events in open to air places , like stadiums , even with 1/10 of the max number of spectaculars per stadium's stand , even with only young fans personnel , other crazy things , it doesn't surprise me the fact they are so stupidly exaggerating with the casinos or other close rooms/places . Stupidity at it's finest .

Oh you will need a courtain wall against the wind, or make some magnetic cards and table....hahaha. I think that the situation with the covid19 is not overcome, and all the activities that are starting, or trying to start, are making from the wishes. But the reality give a reasonable touch of afraid that make that all the prevention couldn´t be enough

The organizers did not have time to make all the preparations (including rodent control after COVID 19). This is not like football and the established schedule is very good. The important thing is that: until then poker rooms must to have many satellites.

CALICUL this business have all the money that they need to buy the time to do it. The question is if the goverments accept their propose. It maybe only a test ballon to generate some good publicity. But the question with the risk of the poker´s tournament is not by the table. They have to make some solution with the transport and the public space

Here it is different and yes there are some time limits... because they take into account several aspects who made them to schedule this series in the autumn. It is important that life to returns to normal and people to have a job for monthly salary.

In Greece almost everything goes back to normality , to the usual life we were living . Ofcourse , stillsome walk in the streets with masks , thinking that they will get protection , although with masks you protect the others from yourself , if you are ill , LOL . Anyway , I hope all other countries do the same , and this lockdown ends once and for all . I really like some countries that didn't follow these crazy lockdown rules these last months . I hope the WSOP takes place this automn , there are ways to protect players . if this is still a priority , even then . No need to cancel it Smile Time will prove me right Smile

The situation has happened and now we do not have to think about what could be done. The important thing is that we will have everything... because normalcy will return. Freedom is the most beautiful, but unfortunately the authorities have shown that we do not live in a democracy.

In Argentina, the big numbers are arriving. Yesterday we had more than 600 new cases of infections, after more than three weeks having only the half of it. Any way, some governors of aome cities like Buenos Aires, are trying to relax the isolation in a suicide decition, more infections = more relax to the measures. I don´t care with becaming poor a bit, but I chose the life!

Maragatero, my friend, you really believe the aberrations on TV? Did you really have neighbors who really died of coronavirus now? I live in a city with a maximum of 2,500,000 unofficial inhabitants and i have not heard of COVID 19, but when the government intervened then number of lies increased through journalists.
