Been waiting to see what this massively hyped update would bring. I'm always a sucker for improvements and new features. But this announcement makes me question some things.
By "all-site anonymous tables" do they mean every table on the site, or just select tables? Up to this point their goal has seemed to be to make ALL tables anonymous. If they're now saying that HUDs and datamining are only disabled on *some* tables, that doesn't make sense because if they "cracked" it for any table you'd think they'd apply it everywhere. They've gone out of their way to try and block datamining sites (which is good) as well as trackers/HUDs (bad) and this seems a bit incongruous with that philosophy.
On the same token, up to 20 tables now? That sure doesn't seem to fit the Recreational Player Model either. Can't imagine many sportsbook fish who crank up 20, 10, or even 4 tables for that matter. Not that every multi-tabler is a winning player, but you don't find many that will play 20 and not know a little about what they're doing. Doubt seriously that many would want to 10 or 20 table without a HUD though. Unless you're Leatherass or Shaun Deeb it's pretty much impossible to do and book a decent hourly.
These two things along make me wonder (and be someone hopeful) if they're coming to their senses about winning/grinding players not being welcome there. Maybe when MMGG takes branding completely over in another month, we'll see things become a bit more rational in that regard?
Bodog Becky, do you have any insight here as to whether the RPM will be pursued by MMGG with the same aggression as it has thus far? It's hard to tell whether RPM came from the Bodog side (seems likely since it parallels Calvin's views) or Alwyn's.

LOL, you seriously ask this?
Nothing whatsoever to do with HUDs, everything to do with Bodog's "Recreational Player Model" and discouraging winning players away from their site. They think winning poker players are bad for their poker economy.
