    Mask mandates returning to NV and especially Vegas

    No offense but if this stays in effect it’s gonna crush the WSOP. People aren’t gonna wanna sit for 12hrs at a table wearing a mask for days on end to grind it out. I was serious about going but having to wear a mask for hours on end with the diagnosis of restrictive pulmonary disease per my Pulmo yeah no thanks.

    Pretty good chance I won't be at the 2021 WSOP.

    I have asked a half dozen times and no reply

    If I can wear a huge ass mask, sunglasses and a hat in a game of information …. and it’s encouraged… and I will possibly be richly rewarded ….

    why wouldn’t I do that?

    If my opponent wears none of that I should be even more pleased.

    What am I missing?

    You're stuck in a tournament for 10-12 hours per day, with only short breaks, and it will get really uncomfortable being forced to wear this thing.

    I don’t accept that … that’s a lack of commitment

    I would wear it by choice to give me an advantage. I’d do a lot of things for a million dollars.

    If the Walmart kid wore it 40 hours a week for $12/hr ….

    Back in 2008 I woulda I woulda had a full gator to hide my neck (swallowing) too if I could. Casino never would have allowed it.

    That’s fine though. Carry on

    How is it an advantage if everyone else has one on?

    To me it would be a disadvantage because all of our faces would be covered, yet I would be one of the more tilted people about having to wear it.

    Touchť

    Appreciate that I had originally asked this question before this weeks’ mandate. Now that opportunity for advantage has passed.

    I don’t blame you for skipping it.

    Will they refund entry fees? A brutal_thinker class action suit awaits the wrong answer

    Lots of people care about the WSOP. Nobody cares about your meathead conspiracy-believing ass.

    Itís time to move the WSOP to the Seminole Hard Rock in Florida. Masks will be optional.

    Embrace the gasmask.

    I'm sure at the WSOP, they will be selling multi-colored gasmasks.

    Also be sure to wear gloves.
    Poker is a dirty game.
