I recently had more than 700 entries on Poker Stars. It was a NL hold’em affair with a moderate $ 15 entry fee. I made it into the final table approach I fully checked to become a participant.
How do I check out my competition? Well, if you have been playing online poker, you will know there are many places where you can submit the name of your opponent and be served with an abundance of details regarding his tournament performance. Some of the more prominent online sites that provide service are SharkScope, ThePokerDB, and Official PokerRankings 더킹카지노.
Some of the database sources are ROI, number of tournaments entered, streaks, in the money percentage, prize money won and much more. A quick scan of these statistics can easily identify your chosen or strong player. Combine that information with some tracking tools like Tournament Indicator provides, and you can pretty much have your opponent Pegged before you ever play hand with him.
Now the security at Poker, as they have been consistently taken (sometimes bold) steps to introduce fairness and security for all of its players. This corporate mindset has now changed all database services I just mentioned here, by recently sending out website operators outlining a new policy that essentially negates their effectiveness, as far as using it on Poker Stars anyway.
Poker Stars new position on poker player and poker player when playing at Poker Stars Security staff:
“We are implementing what the majority of players who have weighed in on this issue have asked for, and are acting in the best interests of the game.”
“Many of the players have” been called “sharks” or “being sharks”. These are the sites for the voluntary sites, which are untrue. . ”
“A player that wants to publish his results is welcome to do so, but a player who wants to protect his privacy should be able to do so well.”
In regards to this position and others that Poker Stars has been implemented, it seems clear to me that they want to be the leader in the market, not by way of volume, but by integrity as well. I think this move to the biggest, most intimidating online poker site operators who will now be forced to change their policies will be forced to change their policies.
One thing about Poker is that you are the dominant leader, you can at least appreciate that you have the player and your privacy in their security policies. Nobody really asked them to do that, and there showed some thoughtful, strategic planning.
