This is a discussion on Regretable actions in the age of COVID within the online poker forums, in the Live Poker section; I am trying to get a Murphy's Law feel of what has gone wrong at the poker table that can be tied to some aspect
Will let you know at the end of these 8 live tournaments I am playing.
So far I love it and see nothing but advantages other than you cant get facial reads. But that works both ways so is a washout.
If I had my way we would play like this forever. LOVE the plexiglass dividers and I dont mind playing 8 handed.
Where are you playing? Maryland Live is having a big tourney the first weekend of May that I'm looking at, although I don't think I can pull it off. Really want the WSOP Circuit to come back to Harrah's Cherokee.
re: Poker & Regretable actions in the age of COVID
So far the only issues have been related to sound - and that is primarily due to noisy casino factor. Combine that with muffled voices due to masks and a tiny bit of sound barrier due to the plexiglass and there have been a few issues. Particularly at the Venetian where I was seated outside the piker room next to a very noisy bar. It is reasonably quiet in the Wynn.
With all that said I could play like this forever and prefer it. LOVE the plexiglass- and optional masks forever would suit me just fine. But masks should be required until we reach herd immunity - especially for those who have not been vaccinated.
