Now that certainly adds another dimension to the game...you could deliberately wear a mask to increase your good bluffing opportunities...Derby Lane Poker Room (Tampa, FL)Derby Lane Poker Room (Tampa, FL)

Re: Derby Lane Poker Room (Tampa, FL)

I love the full frontal facial nudity. Very liberating. Also, tables are 9 handed now. Though I actually preferred the 8 handed thing, I was hoping that would remain. But thank God we're done with the masks here. Silks will be the same soon as well, according to an email from their manager to employees.

Let's hope Hard Rock Tampa follows suit, but I doubt it

Yes, was there last night...Hard Rock currently has all their COVID-19 protocols still in place...temperature check coming in, masks required, plexiglass dividers, they wipe down all the surfaces when a seat opens, hand sanitizer every time you come back to the table.

And they're often short-staffed, so sometimes you're left waiting for awhile before they get around to cleaning a seat and railing before they can even mark it as open to be filled.

THEN you have to further wait for someone at the brush stand to call the next name on the list.

Sometimes they're quick about it, but oftentimes they are not.

Re: Derby Lane Poker Room (Tampa, FL)

Any idea when hard rock is going to life these requirements? Seems like Vegas and most places already did. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense for that to continue.

Probably best not to derail this thread and post in the Tampa Hard Rock thread instead:

Re: Derby Lane Poker Room (Tampa, FL)

For those who haven't heard, be advised that Derby has changed their promo mid-month for June-- now, out of the blue, Fridays and Saturdays do NOT count for hours in the 60 hours for $699 promo. Pretty scummy move. I guess the amount they'll save by not paying out the players who can't complete this promo now is worth their honor and integrity and a business. Pathetic.

Yeah they were saying they miscalculated the budget for the promo. Their management has been terrible. Terrible decision by them. I mean who runs a high hand promo from 10am-noon and 8pm to 10pm. Who makes these decisions?

Also, if you had points in May on your card for food/bevs their system is pretty dumb. Order food, get receipt, Take players card to cashier with receipt to get another receipt. Take receipts back to waitress.

Such a weird poker room.

Always read the fine print.
