Played well over 34,200 shoes of baccarat since I started playing at B&M USA casinos.

"Don't say it's a winning hand until you are getting paid for it".

Played numerous properties in Las Vegas, Reno, Southern California, Atlantic City, Connecticut, South Florida, The South/Southeast as well as most areas of The Midwest.

Baccarat, actually a mixture of Watergate, attacking the Gotti Family and the famous ear biting Tyson fight leading to disqualification and a near riot.  Bac has all that more.

A lot of the hotels and casinos in Vegas depend on the high rollers from China. Given the vitriol against them, I suppose they feel they might as well go somewhere else where they can be appreciated to lose their money. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Or so I hear from Far East service reps of the casinos. A huge and drastic drop in China visitor flows. Not so much that their visas were rejected but more so they don't want to come to Vegas and risk intimidation.

Anyway, each party has their points of views. Carpe diem.

The places in the midwest that I play at, currently have $5,000 and $10,000 Max tables. Plenty of Chinese players, most of them are regular players, some coming in from other states where the casinos are not up and running or the table games are not up and running.  But there is absolutely no resentment towards the Chinese players whatsoever, no matter what happened with their country's government and the origination of  C19, etc., and there is absolutely no talk or related discussion about C19 whatsoever that I have seen in the last several months at the casinos, unless it is a question about masks or drinking at the table. 

Although not on the scale for international travelers and an international destination in the Midwest, I grant you but still there is no resentment or feelings towards the Chinese people bringing in $10,000 to $30,000 as a norm for a regular session.
