Re: Do house rules typically permit use of a monocular at the table?
 
I have a friend that plays at Caesar's IN that has a monacle (spelling?) attached to his glasses and has to pick up his hole cards and read them with a magnifying glass.

I always tell him who I am when I walk up and say hello. I think he recognizes my voice now but old habits are hard to break.

At Hawaiian Gardens it's printed right on the table: "ENGLISH ONLY AND NO MONACLES WHILE THE HAND IS IN PLAY"

Would this be an ADA violation?

NO, ADA requires reasonable accommodations not necessarily the person's accomodation of choice. So you tell someone they can't use a a monocular but you have the dealer announce the board cards they are being accomodated.

That's not EXACTLY what ADA says. It's not ok to make some minor accommodation. You must make a "reasonable" accommodation. Reading off the board cards would be the best the casino can do for a totally blind person (and I've seen this done). But if a person with limited sight can see the board cards without outside aid if allowed to use a magnifying device, the casino would be very hard pressed to make a case as to why they can't allow it. Just like it's not acceptable for a casino to say their accommodation to wheel chairs is they'll agree to carry their patrons up any stairs--they MUST provide ramps or elevators--it's not necessarily going to be ok to say the dealer will assist the player.

But IANAL.

i think you just have to go it on room by room basis,many card rooms dont want someone sitting at the table with a nocular or a teloscopic device to see cards,either glasses that fit your prescription or in most cases if you let the dealers know about your issue they should be happy to read the flop cards out to you. I mean they are workin for their tips anyway + most have a basic courtesy in them anyway.
