Players will find safe and socially distant tournament play with the Hard Rock’s Safe + Sound initiative. In addition to thermal temperature scanning upon entry and mandatory masks/face coverings policy for all guests and team members, all tables are outfitted with protective Plexiglas between dealer and players, and in between players. Each table will be played eight-handed, as opposed to the standard nine-handed to encourage social distancing. All chips and cards will undergo routine cleaning, and all areas will be sanitized once a player leaves the table and before another sits.
