Well, we was talking about that matter for month, and I think that the long thought of this guy is really coherent with all that we said here. The world don´t be the same despite the isolation finish, despite the vaccine will be working, until the total eradication of the bug. And all the measure that we was chating, and all that Haxton is saying, will be absolutely needed

Life returns to normal and people need to get out of their homes. In casinos, live poker is good to play and gamblers are scattered all over the world, but online they can gather and sign up for interesting games. It is easier in front of devices (pc, laptop, android) but both options are needed.

I can imagine how much pros miss live poker and how bad they want that every open,especially in america where they cant play online on big sites,so they need live games and to play with big amounts!but other countries also want to make live games or tournaments,so we will have lot of news in next weeks about it,but just with less players on them!

Wearing masks at casinos these days should be mandatory , I see they take so many other measures , just impose also the use of masks , so what , players won't be able o check some tells from players , still hey will be seeing their hands , or the neck , or eyes idf they don't wear glasses , lol Smile
I also have never decided not to go somewhere (school , university , job, for fun somewhere ) if I had a cold , but now things have changed , people have othr demendings , stricter , so you have to take this into consideration also at the casinos when you go there to play live SmileIf you have a cold , if you are ill , simply don't go . Also , I think , if they have body temperature detectors at the doors , they might not allow you the entrance , so you will have gone there for nothing , a waste of time AND money Smile

Well, in other news is announced that Casinos in Las Vegas will be open tomorrow, because the Nevada´s district hasn´t much more case of coronavid in the last two weeks. I think that these is too much rush, and they are thinking in the echonomy but not in the health. I accept that I don´t know the zone, and how does the people make their moves, and makes their travelling. Hope they have luck!

Life is beautiful in live tournaments for professional players because for them this is a job from which they survive. There is not so much pleasure for themm because the games are taken seriously by the majority. Online is good but live is more appropriate at this time for VIPs.

All addicts miss their addiction. Especially at the beginning Smile
Sitting on a table for 12 hours he says playing poker.
And he is missing it...
Yes they can make a lot of money some of this player,
but missing this whole thing sounds silly to me.

Probably , nowadays , with this corona virus spread , eating at the poker table , just to save some time , while you wait for your turn to play , I agree won't be a good idea , for health/hygienic reasons . But , on the other hand , all these restrictions that I hear , about fewer players at the tales , a way to be found so as not to touch allthe time the chips , the plexiglass dividers , I believe all these are axaggerations . Masks , gloves , cover of all face and neck if needed , temperature detectors at the entrances of the casinos , ae good enough measures . I think they have gone too far with this social distancing , other ways , BETTER , to achieve protection there are , but WILL to do so , there isn't ....

Coronavirus did not bring more players to the online tables. I noticed this and poker is not as popular as in the past. It's very sad because when i watch 50 cent games or $ 1 with 200 or 300 players and 2-3 years ago there were 1000 or more. Too many rooms have reduced this number but also the abandonment of some gamblers.

players already have lot of stuffs on them when they play poker,so to have mask wouldnt be anything strange!you all know how they have sunglasses,ski masks and lot of different stuffs,so this will just help them on playing live poker!they will still need to wait that they allow to lot of people to be on one place!how soon,we will see!

For sure dule vu , some of these things ghey want introduce to the poker tables for the protection of the players , they will also help them protect themselves from '' tells reading '' , or they are already using them Smile Covering mouth , or even neck , some people even hiding their hands , or their eyes ofcourse , is a common practice Smile

If they find a way to apply these protection measures on a 8/9max table , then the problem with the tournaments will have been solved . But if they desire more and more protection measurres , for example these hatefull plexiglass deviders , then not , this will not be possible on a large scale , like on a multi table tournament , so as for it to take place Smile

Well, as we said in some past moments, the return of live poker´s tournaments still is far away. All the anxious people who wanted to see the tables full again, will have to wait a bit more. The covid is here (in the world) and it appears that want to keep with us for a long time...
