      If I don't run a HUD during a session, will the opponents still see my stats if they have their HUD on?

      Is there a way that opponents can not see my stats while playing? I noticed some players do not display stats on some occasions?

      No the huds are independent for each person. If you don't have a hud it will make no difference to anyone elses hud.

      Think about your post please. How does your tracker create the HUD? Right, the tracker imports the HHs from the room and read it into a database. If your tracker doesn't run, the other players will still have the HHs from the room with your nick.
      There is no chance to hide it. :)

      How about you think about your post. Not everyone understands how the HUD works.

      As mentioned above, HUDs collect their statistics from the hand histories. Your stats are collected by the villain, so there's nothing you can do about that.

      The only option to hide your statistics is to go to a room that is not supported by HUD software. But that usually means you cannot use your software to review your sessions as well.

      Hello mute20 and Silicernium,

      Thanks for the clarifications! I just thought this stats were computed on the fly as more hands are played :D

      I don't have much edge with the game and with my stats showing I'm sure I am exploited even more, but I guess HUDs are here to stay.... X(

      have a good day! :D

      Everybody playing without a HUD I think that would be fun :D Though I don't think many sites (or the popular ones, Stars, PP ...) offer the HUD free environment though...

      Thanks!

      I don't believe that HUD is going to help a lot if you play few tables, without prper number of hands collected.
      Major sites won't ban them because multi table grinders won't be able to focus enough without them. Less tables, less rake.....

      Apparently Bodog and Microgaming support anonymous tables to a limited extent:

      Less fish with huds too... Less fish = less playing players = less rake :P

      Thanks for the feedback.

      The article also showed PP has some! Checked them out and found them, though it starts at NL50 headsup (my whole BR :D ) . May try Bodog later....
