Time to work on your poker face.
Poker rooms in Sin City no longer require masks for vaccinated players. The thick, plexiglass dividers that were installed during the pandemic are also gone from most rooms.
The one pandemic change that IS sticking around? 8-handed rather than 9 or 10-handed tables. The Wynn Poker Room bumped its seat count to nine players per table, but the rest are sticking at eight for now.
Poker returned to Vegas last June when casinos reopened. Originally, games were limited to four players per table. The limit was quickly raised to five, then six, before eventually landing on eight. The first plexiglass dividers were introduced by the Bellagio Poker room June 18, 2020.
Good morning poker players! With the recent removal of our plexiglass dividers, tournaments at the Orleans will be played 9-handed, effective immediately. Cash games will still be 8-handed for the time being. Thank you all for your patience and understanding over this last year.— OrleansPokerRoom (@OrleansPokerRo1) May 15, 2021
