O.K. I have said it several times I am fairly new to poker. Started playing in december and was advised to check out poker edge, which I did and stupidly purchased. I find it does not work on most sites and joined here in May and found a link it was illegal, I was wondering why, whereas I purchased and do not use because like I said is unusable most sites. But found it shocking it is illegal and they still promote it. What is the difference between that and other software that is recommended?

My understanding is that PE is essentially database sharing, whereas a program like PT is entirely hands that you yourself have seen (and thus theoretically could have manually noted).
fwiw, I don't find PE to be than accurate...

re: Poker & Poker Edge
Like AG said it uses a central db to store hands and shares it with all users ( a big no-no on both Stars and TIlt). I know at one time you could use it legally at Bodog (I did for several months). I couldn't find anything when I just searched for a list of programs banned by Bodog, which leads me to believe it is still officially "ok" to use it there.
FWIW I stopped using it long before I left Bodog basically because it rarely worked and I discovered that I could use Poker Tracker with a handgrabber there.
