Posted on 21 May 2020 by "T".
Two poker rooms in Florida are going to reopen their doors this week. Players who will be coming in should very well expect an entirely different experience than what they used to know.

I was supposed to move back to the USA until COVID-19 pandemic got out of control worldwide this spring. I guess I am stuck in Japan for at least another 6 months.

This is an ideal thing for all American poker players because they love hold'em or other games and now because of the coronavirus they will be happy to leave their homes. We'll see what the crowds will be or maybe people will prefer something else.

As long as they keep their clients safe, this is very good news. It is actually not that hard to put a transparent dividers between players and as long as the dealer's hands are clean you can go through a game completely safe from the Corona virus.
I guess is it works all casinos will follow very shortly and poker players' lives will go back to normal.
Let us all cross our fingers for that.

First of all they should guarantee the custumers and employees safety, after that, it's good to hear that, slowly things are getting back to the way they where before... it's a step forward... I really hope things go well...

Again antonis321...ALL IS NEEDED! we had this talk in another threat. You insist in make some light to the restrictions and I explain there that all the measure into the poker´s room have to be taken. not only the plexiglass, also the mask, the temperature´s control, the station to sanitized his hands, etc. You are fighting against the virus, doing it with a no sense fight against the measure...

The pace can be slow but at some point it will be a turn back to the way
of life we used to know. At least this is what we all hope for...
It is remarkable seeing that the live poker may take up to two years to come
back to normal rhythms. That is a long time to go...

Be glad that there is no restriction and now you will see the WSOP in the fall on TV, or maybe you are lucky to qualify for a live tournament. In this way may visit Florida as well and can play poker with pleasure. It is important to arrive in the USA.

I don't know maragatero , the plexiglass what purpose serves ??? I mean , if you have mask , ....Ofcourse one player can touch the other , so if they were gloves there would be no need of these plexiglass dividers , as contact between players through hands or mouth saliva would not be possible . Am I missing sth ?? This plexiglass ... It reminds me of the communication rooms in JAILS , so as the prisoners , especially the ones in a death row , to communicate with their visitors , friends or relatives . Very depressing Sad

Gloves are useless, unless you know how to operate them. They say it's even worse than not wearing gloves. If you touch your face with an infected glove you will get sick and everybody touches their faces. It only makes you feel protected which makes it worse.
The Pexiglass is to make social distancing - the most important element of fighting the Corona virus. This works great in the outdoors, not sure that it will work with an airconditioned environment.

If you clean the air inside a closed doors/roof facility , like a casino , with air-conditioning system , things are much better . If they have gloves , things are better as well , imo . if they wear also masks , then the possibility to get infected goes down , almost to zero . If you add the thermo detector in the entrance , scanning players and personnel , 24/7 , the cleaning personnel working 24/7 , then you know if plexiglass is needed or not . This stupid plexiglass I also see it in the supermarkets cash desk , in front of the emploees , in my country , but at the same time these employees don'rt wear gloves , they touch your products , touch their face or neck or surfaces , and then again your products ... This plexiglass is for their protection only ??? Also laughable .....

In a month, the masks and gloves will probably disappear because i think people will have a hard time with that and the heat will be guilty. Scanning is a colossal abuse. Don't allow that. Something is wrong with these 5G, vaccines, scanning, chemtrails, gas etc...

Supose this antonis321: a player is fighting for a big pot, he take his mask down to touch his nose that was itching, in that moment sneezes and cannot prevent a part of its dew from splashing everything around it. That is only one of the thousand of situation tha make the plexiglass an useful prevention. And it might be use to give some psichological security, don´t you think?

Thermo detectors only detects the ones that shows symptoms. The problem with this particular virus is that it is contagious long before symptoms are shown.
Gloves are useless. Masks really help but the best thing is social distancing and the best way to do it in a close vicinity is by the plexiglass. The only problem I have with that solution is the ventilation system. I would be much more calm if it was in an open safe outside but this is probably asking too much.

The virus will spread in anonymity and people will throw away gloves or a mask. Life returns to normal for most of us. The others will think differently, as a frustrated member of BRM, but this is the situation. Poker will be played in Florida and everywhere where there are casinos with this.

I suggest we could play live in a casino wearing these very good uniforms
https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=104416437867024&am... , then everything would be much better , or even more there would be no need to use any extra precaution . They can also use breathing mask , like the ones the frogmen use , lol , for better protection . They can also be plugged to blood machines , like the kidney disease people do , lol , but they will use them to check their blood real time for corona virus or other deseases , tests will be running evry half an hour Big Smile

The best way to check body temperature is from the ass , maybe players will be playing while plugged in with thermometers , you know where Smile

In 6max tournaments , they can place 7 bath tubes around the table , 6 for the players , one for the dealer , and fill this bath tubes with disinfection liquids , lol .

Also , it's not ony Maria Ho , many players do go to casinos and stay before and after tournaments in the hotel rooms there to have fun , sex , . So why not , close the hotels , or give them the pills they give to soldiers in many countries' armies , to reduce their sexual impulses , lol , so as to acieve isolation .

Or impose them to wear darth vader kind of masks , opening only with keys the casino men will have , lol , also they could wear metal gloves , firmly locked to the hand , also the keys will be in the casino responsible personnel , and they will unlock them when the players want to leave the casino Smile

Or wear to the players chains , like they do to the dangerous criminals and convicts , then lock these chains on the table , in a way that the movement freedom grades for the hands will be very few , a;llowing them to move around their chips only , so as no yo be able to reach the other players .

Also they can enchain the whole body of the poker players , not only the hands , at the tournaments tables , BDSM like , so they will use only their mouth to say what moves they want to make , and a floor manager or the dealer will make these moves . A little change in the poker rules and habits , but necessary .

I could think sooo many other ways to guarantee safety , Plexiglass dividers is only the beginning . Let's try all these methods , and many more , see which method fits us best , which isolates us completely Big Smile

Yes roeish3, I agree with you. And all the problems that are trying to solve with these measures are only a little and obvious proportion that all the possibilities of infection that can be happen in a poker´s room, with a tournament with thousand of players. Inclusive, the way that all that people travel to the place. I don´t think that play poker maybe an essencial matter.

I agree with you - Maragatero. It is really not an essencial matter, but eventually all matters will come back to normal, or at least the "new normal". This "new normal" will include casinos and poker room actively accepting players and gamblers. The two questions are when should they open and how should they operate.
It maybe too soon still, but I don't think that casinos will not operate in July/August. I just hope they will manage to make it as asafe as possible for the staff and players.

Yes that´s true, with the new normality, finnally, the tournaments could return withi their thousand of people walking around. But, the list of activities that need to be starting in first place is really long. In m y country, we couldn´t see our friends and loved people, the childs couldn´t goes to the schooll, all the system education, inbcluding superior levels, are stoped. A lot of people can´t work...
