Hello ladies and gentlemen, I think everyone has heard that Russia has invented vaccine against caronavirus? Logically, with a decrease in the disease, sanctions will be lifted, including on visits to casinos, what do you think: “Will there be a decrease in players in online rooms?” Sincerely Sergey ...

Some decrease at first, people are still scared, and it will take a year at least for this to be full back to action.

Players will not stop playing online even if the casino is open to them. They will try to win back. I have heard that most Russians spent more than 80% of their savings during the virus. A large number of divorces were due to gambling.

It's my understanding that the scientific world retains some scepticism regarding the veracity of Russia's vaccine discovery.

"Unlikely" was a word I remember being used...

Don't get me wrong- I want vaccines, treatments and cures to be discovered and implemented as much as anyone, but talk is very cheap.

Yes, of course, the restrictions will end up being lifted and certainly less people will consurrira to the physical rooms so that the online rooms take on even more importance in the life of the games.

The human immune system if fit and healthy can fight off Covid-19 without any vaccine Sergei9417,
My 2 sons a 3 year old and my 9 year old boy who had asthma even it was no bother to them running around hyper and playing like normal children when ill,
Also partner and myself got this illness and recovered in April after 2 weeks completely without any vaccine and no medication or hospital intervention needed either.
Think it is pointless restricting and locking down young healthy people leaving them out of work for example and all the attention and protection should go on the vulnerable elderly people and those with serious medical conditions or immune suppressed people.
Let nobody near them until this passes reckon millions more people have caught this and recovered without getting tested and seeking medical treatment couple of bad days only 5 or 6 then you start to recover.
So regarding Casinos young fit people who do not live with somebody at risk go and play without worry and enjoy but elderly or immune suppressed or vulnerable stay away from Casino for your own safety.

I think many people will remain online. The uptick in online players was less from casinos being closed and more from people off work and bored. Many of these people will continue to play a few nights a week for a while. Some are not even back to work yet. It will slowly taper back down over the next few years.

Hello! Dear hugh blair, the vaccine does not cure, but reduces the risk of infection, I am very glad for you that you have suffered this disease without serious consequences, but when I look at the news on the numbers of people dying from the virus every day, I never cease to be horrified. Respectfully Sergey.

I think the decline in online poker will be due to more people going back to work -for various reasons including vaccines etc

I think that this is a question that has a two part answer.

First part: The pure hourly volume will decrease as people go back to work. There simply won't be enough time to put in the same kind of volume for those in this situation. Somebody pointed this out in a previous response in this thread, and this is a good point that should be acknowledged

Second part: The popularity of online poker won't wane, because those who took up online poker who were previously brick & mortar players exclusively won't stop playing online due to the convenience. The one obvious example that comes to mind is Michael Loncar (Twitch Streamer). He was a live player exclusively who made the transition to online poker, though for different reasons (Black Friday in the United States). He acknowledged that he will play live again once it is available (and most importantly safe for him), but he's never going to stop playing online, and has dedicated himself to improving his game.

Now, he's doing this to make a living, but a lot of people who play to supplement their main income will see that playing online is just simply more convenient and the hourly earn is higher (potentially) than live. I don't see people stopping playing online poker once the pandemic is in the rearview mirror, whenever that is.

FYP.

Why you should be skeptical of Russia's coronavirus vaccine claims
https://www.axios.com/russia-putin-...ism-dc7d3f7d-6c0a-4c28-846b-4bdc9ad5e8ed.html

Why it matters: Scientists around the world are skeptical about Russia's claims. There is no published scientific data to back up Putin's claims that Russia has a viable vaccine — or that it produces any sort of immunity without significant side effects.
  • A Russian vaccine has not gone through any phase three trials, which are lengthy and involve thousands of participants for testing.
  • Experts caution that introducing a vaccine to the population without widespread testing could have serious negative consequences, including unexpected side effects or simply undermining public trust in their efficacy.
What he said: "I know it has proven efficient and forms a stable immunity, and I would like to repeat that it has passed all the necessary tests," Putin told a news conference. :rofl:

That doesn't match the definition of a vaccine.

Hi Hugh
You hit the nail on the head. We flattened the curve now lets move on.
I see by your profile that your are from the US, Do you have any data to show that the curve has flattened in the US as you say? How bad do you think the 2nd wave will be like when it comes in the US?

I intend to live this way, make a living playing online after this pandemic.

Hi!

I don't think it's worth going to a casino to play poker yet. You have to wait to see if the vaccine is really effective or not. I certainly wouldn’t risk being either caught or not and either the vaccine works or not. You have to take time and watch the net to see how things are going in the world. As long as you sit at home and there are online rooms.
