re: Poker & PokerStars Announces Changes That Will Restrict Various Third-Party Software
"Under the new conditions set by Party, all tracking software and HUDs
are out, as are seating scripts, which enable players to avoid regs and victimize weaker players. Following the recent lead of Full Tilt, table selection will also be a thing of the past."
So they're basically curtailing stats-tracking and "bum-hunting". I can see how a rec is unfairly targeted. But I think since HUDs are so widely used, it seems better to just include one in the poker client (like Carbon, I think?), and make it so a rec can see who is using it and who is not; then they have the option to use it also.
