This is a discussion on What will be the new normal? within the online poker forums, in the Live Poker section; When the casinos and cardrooms open their doors again, what do you think will change from what we knew before COVID-19?
Will poker come back when
All very good questions. I am missing live poker - home games with friends and casino game in Niagara Falls, NY.
Yes, when the stay home orders are lifted, I will be very cautious about live games, but then, I expect I will play. Hand washing will be the norm, and I hope poker rooms will take very aggressive action to ensure clean cards, clean chips, clean tables, and lots of sanitizer for players and dealers.
When Casinos and poker rooms reopen it could be like playing 6 max on a cash tables, they might have you wear a mask, or take temps as you walk through the doors. Not sure how they would handle tournaments
