So with the second shot in arm, after a little over a year, I climbed out of the cave and headed to the Bellagio to play. There I found plastic shielding on the tables and eight handed games to accommodate the plastic shields. This week I went down on Wednesday to find the plastic taken down but the games remained eight handed.
I liked the eight handed games. So I went and talked to the shift manger, a guy of known the best part of 30 years, and put my informal vote in to keep the tables eight handed. He said a lot of people like the eight handed tables and the powers that be are considering keeping the games that way going forward.
So do you like a shorter game? Why?
