Have you played live since Covid?

Played live the other day and it was really odd. Played at Canterbury in Minnesota and props to them for their efforts. So what was odd? Playing in a plastic cubical with 5 others in their own plastic cubicle, everyone having masks so these two made it hard to be social at the table. No eating at the table, passed anti bacterial with the button ( plans are to use the bottle as the button moving forward). With the configuration it is really hard to hear checks so I would strongly suggest a hand check instead. For social distancing the number of tables got cut from 52 to 12 and for me the worst part is no tournaments for the foreseeable future. My thoughts? I was so happy to be playing live and will be back soon.

    Anybody from Europe here? I finally managed to build a BR playing online to go to the casinos, but now most I know still don't run poker, and I'm pretty eager to give it a shot...

    I have played live in home games for the past few weeks. I know it's not casino play but still the player type is exactly the same...many care little about themselves let alone carrying about others. I'm the only one in mask due to my wife insisting that if I'm going to play live, I will be in a mask and wash my hands and be very careful.

    It's really really tough. Go to the bathroom and wash hands...there's two towels that everyone uses to dry them. After that, the door knobs, then food is brought in. I try to demask and sit away from the poker table and the group to eat. I go back to the table masked up and now I'm thirsty. I go get water and now when can I drink it because I have to demask to do so. Every time I try to talk, people can't hear me because of the mask. It's just an absolute pain.

    My mother in law has been diagnosed with breast cancer and now has to undergo chemo which will lower her immune system. Now that poses an entirely new set up circumstances to my live play. If I get covid, then it could be transitioned to my mother in law via my wife's visits and care.

    This vaccine can't come soon enough.

    I have zero plans to play in a casino or home game anytime soon. I am south FL and somehow there are poker rooms open when our numbers are WAY worse when we were under quarantine!
