How live poker has adapted to the pandemic

Live poker appears to be making a huge comeback in 2022 as the protocols around Covid-19 become increasingly strict in casinos throughout the world.

The World Series of Poker was forced to move online in 2020, while the majority of other events had to be cancelled.

As the worst of the pandemic hopefully appears to be behind us, live poker organisers have been thinking of innovative solutions to reduce the spread of the virus and to ensure that more tournaments don’t get postponed.

Live poker typically involves eight or nine players huddled round a small table, touching and transferring chips and cards among each other for hours at a time.

The WSOP 2021 announced last August that all players will be required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to take part in the series. This caused confusion among a few players as casinos in Las Vegas generally didn’t have the same requirements.

According to SunSentinel, several casinos in the US have adopted a strict approach when it comes to sanitisation. All casinos are required by the CDC to clean chips, cards and the table after a certain amount of hands. Players must also wear masks in a number of venues and sanitise their hands regularly.
