I feel as if poker should be about using your brain not looking at numbers through a computer program that basically does all the work for you. Not to mention the colluders too now. My all in equity money won should be so much higher but because there are colluders on multiple accounts on certain sites.... They can see that they sometimes have your outs and call things normal players wouldn't.... It's so sad what online poker has become

HUDs need to be set up just right for the precise situation. You need to have a large sample size and you need to be able to pay attention to and interpret everything that the HUD is telling you in addition to what you're actually seeing. Where's the fun in that?
