copied it from the promo thread about the powerpoker $75 ADDED tournament. Thanks for letting people know about what pokertracker actually means to online poker players.
This is something that the HandyMan and his friends have discussed a lot. We believe it has harmed online poker cash games. That is why we suggest that players who do not use pokertracker and other data mining software sign up and play Rush Poker from Full Tilt or PowerPoker.
By signing up for these sites, for those who do not use pokertracker and play poker as god intended, you may have an advantage over those who no longer have the full ability and stats of pokertracker to guide them.
Of course it is everyone right to use every advantage they can get in poker and not good luck but good roboting to them.
Pokertracker can be good for your game though. When playing live or on a site that does not help pokertracker it trains you to remember certain new types of data about players and their playing styles.
But you should always be watching and trying to remember a players betting patterns as these are the biggest tells and information of all.
And as to burning question that everyone must be thinking and want the answer to... does the HandyMan use pokertracker? The HandyMan can but the HandMan dont.
Lets play poker instead, man against man.
