      When I ended my session, like usual I go check my session, evaluate my hands, calc with equity, post hands on forums and use the equilator (poker elephant & equilator) to evaluate stuffs.

      But my FTP program was active at that moment, I heard you get banned for using it. Although I was not on any tables at that time and only after 60 seconds I noticed my FTP is running so I shutted it down immediately.

      What can I do now? :s_cry:

      I heard equilator is allowed @ stars though...

      Hey ragney

      If FTP have detected it they'll likely contact you and warn you. They don't tend to insta ban folks unless they feel they have good reason to. If you are contacted, just explain what happened and I'm sure there'll be no problem.

      Make sure you take care in the future and you'll be fine.

      Sounds good. I hope they didn't detected me haha. It was only mere 60 seconds. Anyway, on stars you have a list of forbidden programs. How about ftp?

      What's the reasoning behind not being able to run that software? Is there any other software you're not allowed to run?

      Since equilator does not automaticly extract the live play actions, but entering it manually, this means its allowed?

      2. Programs or services that provide additional information on opponents that a player would not normally be privy to:

      Certain programs, websites, and subscription services provide extra information on opponents which may not be used during play. For example, the use of shared databases of tournament histories, results, and statistics are not permitted. Specific examples include:

      SharkScope
      Top Shark
      Smart Buddy
      Poker Table Ratings


      I fucking new, this hits are ont allowed, how can they be leagal to do it stealing hand histories and then selling them this is BUllshit!!! Track everything and make money of it, we should all sue POKERTABLE RATINGS, DATAMINING IS ILLEGAL IN ALL STATES!!!!
