SouthPoint is really a good property. They did not go for the plexiglass, have 5 max with masks.

Easy parking, easy access, far south on the Strip.

I don't stay there, but the rooms are all good-sized (500 s.f.) and competitively priced always. The casino is pretty big. Food service is not gourmet, but that is not their market ... think Steak n Shake, decent Deli, generic Oyster Bar, generic coffee shop, generic Italian.

How are they dealing with people walking?

I feel almost like they should have mandatory table breaks like every other hour, like a tournament or something.

Imagine 2-3 people walking while playing 5 handed, or even more than 1 for two minutes.

I've only played there twice in the Age of CoVid, for about 90 minutes each time. Fwiw, both sessions were good, tables were social, lots of joking among the players, and pretty loose play also. (I have not tried anywhere with "the plexiglass experience", but I think it may segment the market for recreational players. A couple of recs at my tables remarked it was not enjoyable. Keep in mind SouthPoint spreads primarily $1-2.)

Did not experience a problem with players walking. It happened, but the restrooms are pretty close, and we played 4 handed until the player returned. Not an excessive time period, say 8 minutes tops. Keep in mind you are already playing short-handed, adjusting from 5 handed to 4 handed for a couple of hands is not tough.

I do not know how long until a walker gets picked up.

I did not experience 2 walkers concurrently. I expect that if 3 walked, the remaining 2 would call the floor for re-seating. I think the floor staff is pretty good, and would address those sort of issues. (They have a posted policy of like 2 minutes (?) if they call you for a table and you don't answer. So, they are aware of the challenges of short-handed tables. )

Fwiw, I've decided to forego live poker however, as Nevada has a huge issue with Rt and is the WORST State among 50, so there must be a lot of spreading going on in Nevada-heavy places like casinos to so skew the rate of transmission. (Not debating it's a fact or arguing causation, just that I think the probability that something Nevada specific weighs against going to casinos for any prolonged period, like playing poker.)

you played it perfectly. He had AA, KK, or AK, all of which you are behind. If he had JJ there, I'd be stunned, and still wouldn't believe it even if he showed. If so, he earned the pot.

I actually bought one. They look good and more comfortable than basic masks.

From his podcast, hes basically said hes not willing to play live poker under current conditions. I believe hes playing the WSOP online events, so maybe well get some content from that (though I personally have no interest in watching an online poker vlog).

Is this a joke?

They are paying him money to play on their site...it is basically one big freeroll for him, how could it end badly?

Also I've watched the majority of his videos and he really is not a degenerate...he's mentioned before he doesn't even know how to play baccarat or blackjack... Joey the Mush is the actual degen there.

Agree that most online vlogs are horrible.

Neeme’s were particularly bad.

The only online one I will watch is Boski’s.

His edit job is really good and it makes them watchable..

Thanks for the post and sorry for the late response. Not as bad as I suspected but bad enough. Sadly I think I will be foregoing live poker play until things get better and postponing any trips to Vegas as wearing a mask in a casino and dealing with all this doesnt seem like fun.
