Today Trump announced a travel ban from Europe. A quick check on Bravo showed Aria and Bellagio at about half of the number of games I would expect. I saw news that Macau shut down all the casinos there a week ago. For me personally I am running through my head that I need to quit the dealing job and stay away from live poker.
The question is how is the Coronavirus going to effect you and your poker playing?
And contained in that can be these questions;
So how is it going to effect the time you spend at a poker table?
If your a pro are you going to continue trying to make a living?
Anybody here planning on coming to the WSOP cancel plans?
Are we even going to be able to find a live game as the panic spreads?
