Once again people have not been complaining about PartyPoker no longer allowing the use of HUDs. One can be for or against the use of HUDs. I like HUDs, but I can not use a HUD, neither can my opponents (unless they cheate), so I dont have any big principle problem with HUDs not being allowed.
The complaints are about PartyPoker no longer allowing players to download their hand histories. Hand histories are important to allow players to analyse their game away from the table. And they are also important for the integrity of the games, because they allow players to detect and expose patterns, that indicate cheating.
Its amazing how PartyPoker can get away with putting out this smoke screen and not even attempting to answer the serious issues, which has been raised by many players.
hi hiPartypoker has defended its recent software update following pressure from some sectors of the community.
Partypoker Defends Decision to Protect Newbies from Evil HUDs
I believe it was called party caption. You can buy it for $30 for a 30 year licence
Imagine in golf if you could just put on an eyepiece and it would show you all the statistics and forces and angles involved in your shot or the same in pool/snooker - it would ruin the game because now everybody can just instantly make optimal decisions as long as they know how to interpret the data.
Or imagine, that you had instruments in your car telling your speed, the engine revs, the engine temperature, how much fuel is left, or when your car need a service. It would completely ruin the fun of driving. (End of sarcasm).
I also agree with the opinion (maybe posted in this thread, but if not, in others I have read related to HUDs) that HUDs can retard a players growth and development as a player.
My main question; isn't partypoker owned by stars?
A) The two aren't really comparable.
B) Older, more mechanical cars with less software are waaaaay more fun to drive than the PC's-on-wheels rolling off production lines these days*.
