A Faceless change to poker for UK Casinos17th August 2020 |
In a stony-eyed move from UK land based casinos, the “Poker Face” is no more – The industry permitted UK Casinos to resume operation last Saturday as long as players don’t touch their cards (although, they’re still allowed to touch their chips)
What does this mean for UK Casinos?
This means, that hands dealt will have to be done so facing upwards, which is going to be strange for players familiar with three card poker, where typically cards are dealt face down, going on to make a wager if they think their (face down) cards can beat the dealers, that’s when hours of practice in front of the mirror come into play. The “Poker Face”
Now, everyone can see everyone else’s cards, which actually gives players a better chance of revealing the strength of the dealer’s cards.
The Casinos Word
Simon Thomas who owns the Hippodrome Casino in the UK’s capital, said: “It gives the customers a slight advantage but it’s a necessary move. We have placed screens at the table and all gambling will have to be done seated.”
Lenny’s Last Word
Great. Hours of practice in front of the mirror, down the pan… – To be fair, like with many other aspects of their lives of late, players non-privy to change will have to suck it up and get on with it. Plus, there is always online Poker if these new rules aren’t for you!
