      Maybe you haven't quite been grinding them blatently enough. You have to be VERY blatent.

      Also it doesn't track rush in case you weren't aware

      We are talking at least 1k hands a day!

      And yeah, I know it doesn't track rush. I've been playing standard ring games.

      AFAIK it hasn't tracked any February results.

      They're also missing half my Jan hands as well, and the ones they do have are fcukd up. eg. they say one of my sessions was 3 hands. I'd never jump on for 3 hands

      So it appears that Full Tilt are no longer giving out the relevant info to PTR??

      I never really understood how it worked in the first place. But I really wish it still was tracking.

      It seems coaches/players use it as "proof" of their winnings since graphs can be faked etc. So I'd really rather it tracked my results. Seems a pretty silly reason to just transfer a huge part of my roll from FTP to stars though.

      Does anyone have any further information on this or understand any more than the basics behind what is going on?

      Who knows, maybe stars will stopped being tracked next along with the rest.

      Why would you want everyone to know if you are good? Bad players will just avoid you.

      I doubt that.

      You assume bad players will even run a PTR search.

      Besides, knowing someone is good/bad doesn't mean you know how to exploit them.

      Imo, the benefits of PTR outweight the drawbacks.

      PTR has never been that accurate. I stopped using it moths ago when I noticed it wasn't tracking all my hands played on iPoker. Its a waste of space.

      Yeah, it sucks when it misses out some of your hands.

      Hopefully over the long run it evens out between winnings/losses.

      It'll just show you as playing a lot less hands than you actually have.

      It's gotta be at least semi-useful as a rough guide over a large enough sample.

      I used to just like seeing how I'm doing compared to other players on my site at my stake, but if they not doing FT anymore won't bother
