I'm very curious to see how many people show up the first day. I will be there hoping they get a plo game running.

They were getting 3-6 plo games a day pre covid and borgata hasn't exactly done anything to steal their plo business so I'm sure they'd get a few plo games

Also don’t underestimate poker players. That place will be crowded regardless of what time they open

I wouldn't be surprised if NJ announces it tomorrow. I would even bet money on it.

NJ should follow soon. I hope .

We can wait till the vaccine available to all.

I took it upon myself to not play in the casino for the past month+. I donít need the government to make a decision for me on whether or not something is safe. With that said I would not be surprised if jersey casinos get shut down soon, indoor dining in nyc just got clipped today. And Iím not even gonna begin to get into that vaccine discussion, but all Iíll say on that is Iíll be pissed if casinos force you to take a vaccine in order to enter

I would not mind if that’s the standard rule for the safety of other players and employees. It is my personal belief, you can have your choice of opinion.

I would not insist that casino should ask for vaccine proof ,but I would not be visiting casinos until I get my vaccine.

Time will tell on how they will distribute and enforce taking of vaccines. If itís a choice of mask wearing or the vaccine Iíll wear a mask

Not to interrupt the mask debate but, is Parx really opening on the 4th? I imagine this includes the poker room?

Gov. Wolf's restrictions MIGHT be lifted then but who knows. I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

yeah...I'm thinking these governors just ride out whatever restrictions they have in place until April-May when they expect a vaccine to be widely available. I seriously doubt the numbers change much between now and then.

It's official: https://www.parxcasino.com/bensalem/poker

The Parx Poker Room will be reopening starting Monday, January 4 at 8am! We will be open 24-hours with all of our usual games! We've added additional safety procedures, such as, distanced tables, 7 handed play with Plexiglas dividers, and enhanced room cleaning and chip sanitizing.
Many of my favorite dealers seem to be coming back, but at least some who I consider good dealers did not get called back. Not sure on any of the hows or whys. Hopefully they'll pick up slots elsewhere and we'll see them around.

Congrats to Parx for spreading 1/3 instead of 1/2. That was their second best decision (their first best decision was reopening the room).
If Wind Creek doesn't decide to open soon, they can kiss their market share of players goodbye it's now or never (not that anyone really cares anymore).
