      Hello Silent21,

      I hope the following info might be of some use to you:

      "Prohibited Software Programs

      There are several software programs that Full Tilt Poker does not allow players to run while playing on the site. In general, software that confers an unfair advantage is not permitted. If you are uncertain as to whether or not a particular program is permitted, please contact us at support@FullTiltPoker.com.

      The use of automated poker-playing software is prohibited

      Any software that is capable of making poker decisions and directly executing poker actions is strictly prohibited. This includes programs as simple as scripts to automatically fold weak hands.

      Full Tilt Poker exercises a zero tolerance policy on the use of automated players (also known as "bots"). Players who violate this policy are deemed to be cheating, and will have their accounts closed permanently. Any outstanding balance in their account will be forfeited. 100% of forfeited funds will be returned to victims of the cheating.

      The use of software to assist with poker decisions during play is prohibited

      Software capable of making recommendations on betting actions during play is strictly prohibited. This includes programs such as hand strength calculators, tournament end-game analyzers and other poker advisors. Players who use such tools are deemed to be gaining an unfair advantage over their opponents, and may have their accounts closed permanently. Account funds may be forfeited and used to compensate the victims.

      Some software tools are legitimate aids to learning the game of poker. Those tools may only be used offline, when the player is not currently participating in any games on Full Tilt Poker.

      The use of shared hand history databases is prohibited

      Players may not use databases that include hand histories from hands that they did not personally participate in. This includes large subscription databases, and "hand swapping" with other players. Players who use such databases are deemed to be gaining an unfair advantage over their opponents and will have their accounts closed permanently. Any outstanding balance in their account will be forfeited and used to compensate the victims.

      Database programs that track information from a player's personal hand history (i.e. hands in which they have been dealt cards) are permitted.

      Software used for the purpose of sharing hole card information is prohibited

      Sharing hole card information with other players in the same game, by any means whatsoever, is cheating. Players who engage in this practice will have their accounts closed permanently. Any outstanding balance in their account will be forfeited and used to compensate the victims.

      These policies are consistent with the Full Tilt Poker End User License Agreement and the Site Terms that all users explicitly agreed to when registering their account. Full Tilt Poker enforces these restrictions by a variety of methods and has final authority on all decisions. We reserve the right to modify and update these policies at our discretion.

      The integrity of our games is of paramount importance, and we will never compromise when it comes to providing the safest and fairest poker games possible for our players."

      Regards,
      -Steve
