      I see that there are less and less Anon Holdem tables, and more Anonymous tables, where you cant get HUD working properly.

      What do you think/know, is this a way at Microgaming to banish HM/PT for good, so everyone would play without HUD? Cause this pretty much kills multitabling. I could handle only seeing session stats when anon talbes were introduced, but if I cant even see basic VP/PF stats, it's pretty much like playing blindfolded in case I play 5-6 tables...

      If this trend continues I think I have to move, but do you know, is it the same situation at other Microgaming sites as well (24h, Ladbrokes)?

      And those you play here, how do you adapt? Just turn HM off, and play on Anonymous tables? What are your experiences?

      Hey,

      yeah i feel your problem. Currently i just wait on enough anon tables. I only 6 tabling right now. But if you have many more tables opened that become a problem.

      The next problem here is that majority of fishes will move to Anonymous tables and the competition won't be so soft anymore.

      Yea seems like they are heading in that direction with trying to get rid of HUDs otherwise they wouldn't be capping anon tables at such low numbers. I play on 24h and it's same thing.

      I just end up my session on microgaming and got the same prob ... I dont know what they want to do . Whats their real prob with HUD's or what they are trying to accomplish doesnt make sense... I am really angry..

      I loged in on PS and i see that all the regs got this prob.. pff i dont know . Maybe if we sent them emails and complain i think they might rethink what they are doing .

      AND FOR SURE i am going to move poker room if this situation continue.

      Are u try to send them email ? I only have contact with Hm2 support and they say they cant do anything its the site prob. Did you try to send email on the platform u play ? and what was the answer ?

      You are all a bunch of wussies, you should be embarrased to admit that you can't play without computer program that is saying what to do but instead you are crying like babies when someone takes your nipple away and makes you use your brain.
      What are you going to do after 2 years? Do you think poker will become easier and you will bumhunt for the rest of your life?

      Ugh, no hud won't make me or pretty much any other decent winning player into a loser. It does impact our bottom line slightly that's all, since when people are supposed to be happy about it getting harder to earn same amounts of money? You make no sense and sound very butthurt for no apparent reason.

      Well if it doesn't affect your game then why complain? It's not like you are the only one without a hud

      It does affect the amount of tables we can play which naturally hurts our profits and I can't see how any person in any profession wouldn't complain about that.

      I dont think it's up to us, pretty easy for the room to restrict certain type of tables in their own software... Dont want to be pessimistic, but I think it's only a matter of days, and anon tables will be gone.

      I think it's quite clear what's going on. With this last modification the whole network will be 100% tracker-free zone. I guess they think the player pool will be softer this way.

      Anyway, I started cashout today, right now I'm not in the mood for 6tabling without even basic stats. But in the long run, if Microgaming proves to be right, and pool will be fishier than ever, I might return, and try to manage multitabling this way... :)

      I have the same problem at nl20, and it very annoying.

      What do you think about playing a bunch of the regular tables, the green ones. are they going to be tougher in general or what? :)

      You misunderstood all my post completely.
      I said the at 100nl "anon" tables are ALREADY gone! Impossible to open "anon" table.
      Also what I ment to say with second part don't start "anonymous" tables, play on regular tables.
