Its similar to HUDs in poker..All the top pros use HUDS to get stats and tendencies..There is a thought that online poker is very tough to beat unless you are using a HUD
Now that I cant play on Pokerstars I have been playing on Bovada Poker. They run a very interesting software where you are anonymous. You dont know who you are playing against , other than its player 7...Which makes it a lot similar to live poker, where the only info you have is the info you have as you build a story on the guy while he is at your table.
I think HUDs should be banned from poker..WSOP who runs a legal site in Nevada, doesnt allow HUDs..
That's an interesting idea. If I was very confident in the quality of the software (which I would never be, especially for a new entity and all the crap we saw with online poker where people had cheats and backdoors for YEARS), and the site did a good job of severely limiting multiple entries (whether it be cracking down on people multi-accounting or just how many entries any person is allowed), then I could see how the sites could have a lot of success. Then again, without million-dollar guarantees fueled by pros jamming thousands of entries, the sites might not be able to afford their 8 (9?) figure advertising budgets that has everyone talking about them and new fish signing up every Sunday...
