Players at the iPoker network will have the option of playing completely anonymously on certain rooms The new Anonymous tables offer you the chance to hide yourself from all other players. This way, your opponents will not be able to see your nickname, avatar, or get any information on your playing style via tracking software. These tables can be found in iPoker client lobbies under "All Tables" by selecting to show "Anonymous" tables on your ring game filters. All Anonymous tables are titled "Anonymous" followed by numerals, and are indicated by a mask icon
They should combine it with Zoom/Rush, because then it would take care of collusion as well.
I don't play Zoom/Rush at the moment, because I suspect that players using a HUD, have a huge advantage over other players, in this particular format (more so than in any other format, because the software has no problem in tracking many users). Anonymity would negate that advantage.
As for regular cash games, anonymity would not prevent collusion, because they can still join the tables where their partners in crime are, could they not?

Anonymous tables isnt something new. Microgaming has them for quite a long time now. Cant say they were too popular. All the ones woth subscriptions to poker stats stay away from them Maybe its different in iPoker though.
