PokerStrategy.com Elephant to be Discontinued
PokerStrategy.com has come to a decision to discontinue our Elephant hand analysis software.
This decision has come about as a result of wanting to provide the best possible product to PokerStrategy.com users. We could not envision a future scenario in which it would be efficient to continue providing and maintaining the Elephant software.
We strive to give the best service to our members and it was determined that, in the case of the Elephant software, we were unable to live up to our own expectations and the quality that our members deserve.
Can I keep using the PokerStrategy.com Elephant software?
For now, the Elephant software remains available for our members. However, you will only be able to use it for a limited amount of time in the future, depending on which poker rooms you play at.
If, in the immediate future, your poker rooms of choice change their own software or hand history formats, they may no longer be compatible with Elephant. Because of these potential future problems, as well as current problems with Elephant, we will shut down the software entirely after a short period.
The Elephant software will expire on July 9, 2012, at which point you will be unable to use the software.
This has been arranged so that we do not continue to provide a software with increasing amounts of problems that would not be solved.
