Posted on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 by "T".
The world's largest information provider of poker tournament results has succumbed to the pressure from both regulators and players, and it will now allow its users to delete, or at least rename, their accounts.

I think that this is a good thing and cannot see why it hasn't happened before now. If you do not want your results known, you just delete them from now on which must be a good thing

I know it is helpful for many players to see stats from other players, but this is actually,
the way it should have been in the first place.
You want stats? Take your own. This way it will be harder finding the info for every single player.
Less giveaways that way. Better for the players.

well you have right to have privacy,especially in world that we live today!I understand when you play live tournaments and when company where you play use results from tournaments and who won what prize,but why should other companies have every hand that your play!?

of course it is unreasonable that some companies have access to the games of the players .... it makes it possible to use this information for criminal actions .... with this phenomenon it is necessary to fight and not allow any companies to dispose of confidential information .... no

I do not care if this site shows my bad results Sad because it is normal for the results, to be displayed to everyone. It is the best in this way. Anyway, not too many people look at my results and which would be the purpose of hiding them? I think is ok with visual results for all.

I do not understand why forcing account closures or changing names. Snce these accounts have no real names, should be left like this, for majority and only few players to chance the nick names. I did not make an account there because is not for me. I have account in another site to see some results.

But even the loosers have sometimes exceptional days so overall is not necessery gonna help you on the spot all the info you could get out of these databases. The only thing matters is those hands they played at your table.

when we have so many rules for privacy and every other things,especially now in european union,this is for sure one of problems with privacy!in next weeks we will have ban for posting song,links and every other things on internet,so why to have this kind of things for free!

Well as they say that information is public domain to what people do not think is that it is all together in one place, either to avoid any damage to their heritage or like to walk in anonymity, as they say poker by Many people do not accept it as a sport, but a game of avoidance and chance
