I don't think they will. I keep getting emails from the casinos I play at, first it was "the end of March", then "the middle of April", then "the end of April", I can't see things going back to normal, period.

I can't say what I think and why, because of our new "no politics" rule, but there is so much happening, it's not just a virus. And it wasn't no damn bats either.

Please, call me paranoid, call me a nutcase. I SO want that to be true. I would be very happy if it turns out that I am a nutcase. Unfortunately, I'm a serious student of the history of the Chinese Communist Party who just happens to like poker and video poker. I wish the worst thing I had to worry about was 2 BB an hour or monthly bounceback.

Good luck.

Smart bats. They fly 900 miles straight from their caves to China's only Level 4 microbiology lab, the National Biosafety Laboratory, part of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Hoping for May 1.....but Iím highly skeptical it happens.

As each closure day goes by, Vegas grows closer to an economic meltdown of the population. 60,000 laid off from MGM. Untold thousands more from other casinos and the business tentacles related to those closures that spread across the valley.

We better get back to work as soon as humanly possible. The damage could take years and years to recover. Even then, some damage will be permanent.

What if your favorite casino does in fact open on May 1st, and other people go in there and start playing. Will you be among them?

I can see old ladies playing slots, but
the table games with their filthy germ
laden chips not so much. I'm going to
wear disposable plastic gloves. 100
pair for $6.

4 billion people are on lockdown. It could be awhile before 10 million people die each day. Maybe a couple months, especially in the USA.

Lombardy, Italy is just hitting the apex of their curve and they've been on lockdown for nearly a month. So NYC is betting they'll hit their apex of the curve because of the lockdown in 10-20 days. There's still a long ways down from the apex, and there may be no path down with regions stuck at the top of the curve for awhile.

China is opening itself up to crowds again. Simple observation says they will spike from zero cases in 10 days, severely.

The country of China lies. It's a proven fact it is basically the same as Cuba, Cambodia and North Korea, the previous Germany as well as Russia. You can believe what you want to believe but China is definitely lying.

They are lying about the total dead and they lied about so many other things in relationship to this disease.

International borders won't reopen until a safe vaccine is widely available. In the meantime, we'll be in the boomtown of a depression bust.

Every US state will be insolvent and shutdown on July 1st, 2020 unless they get massive bailouts.
