On October 1, PartyPoker announced it will be prohibiting poker tracking databases including
HUDs, seating scripts, and just about any other third-party software that was previously acceptable.
The timeline: within the next few weeks.
In a press release sent to PokerSoftware, we were informed that as part of the Poker for the People
campaign, PartyPoker is making these drastic changes in hopes that they will "level the playing field
for all players."
The most major change will be that you will no longer be able to use a poker tracking database or a HUD
on the site. PartyPoker actually went a step further here, as you will also no longer be able to download
hand histories.
It is speculated that PartyPoker took this extra step since poker tracking software relies on hand history
files in order to populate databases. However, in this author's opinion, without players being able to
review hand history files, more cheating and collusion could happen. It doesn't take someone with too
long of a memory to remember the superuser scandal uncovered at Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker with
the help of hand history files.

They have found for sure, that they are losing money by allowing these softwares to run Smile
Otherwise they would have let this go.
I doubt that any players have ever complained to any poker sites about the tracking
The end of the poker tracking comes to an end.
A new era to poker Smile

Ok i get that using huds and player tracker software can be bad, and they should ban them, but PP is already losing a lot of players and money with them to, so instead of focusing on promotions that can help them boost their player base, they seem to do the opposite, with new rules that would in the long run cost them even more players, so to be honest here, i don't see how those changes are a good thing for them Disagree

I think it is a good ruling to have,I have never used them but if I was playing lots of tables, full time as a professional I would definitely be using one of the tracking tools.I think all players should be on an equal footing.

When i was playing regularly i only used my personal notes in each site.
After some point i meeting the same players over and over again i didnt need the notes either.
That of course on omaha h/l where there is not a big player field.

But if you play holdem for example in another level, then personal notes are useless,
and thats where HUD's made the difference.
