Watched Marginal place high in a tourney last weekend & was reminded by the girl who either took 1st or second, if they don't put in a clock the game is gonna suffer just like golf. I think masks, hoodies & sunglasses are fine playing online, live, don't have an opinion.
I don't seem to have accomplished much with my life so far-----------, but I'm sure making good time.

Depends on the place actually. I prefer playing and watching poker were you can't cover your face, but I saw some cases of wearing scarfs / hoodies / sunglasses in big televised tournaments. This is killing social aspect of the game, but as long as the tourney / casino allows it, you can't do anything about it. That's why I am quite happy in the way that WPT is going with just forbidding such things.
I think there should be a rule that everyone has to play with an uncovered face and no sun glasses. The beauty of live poker is to read your opponents and try and pick up signals as to whether they are strong or weak. I don't blame players for abusing this, given there are no real rules prohibiting in most countries to my knowledge. Just my opinion of course.
