This is to follow up on my previous post about websites syphoning data from poker websites like PokerStars. I play at PokerStars, so, inquired with them as to what they are doing about it.
First, let’s note that PokerStars’ staff is very responsive. Each time I have sent an inquiry, I have received a response within 24 hours, and the response makes sense. It is to the point and answers the question.
Okay, so, when asked what PokerStars is doing about this poker data syphoning situation, I received a reply from a member of the PokerStars Game Security Team. I was assured that they are working on the situation and that things are being put into place…
…we have a schedule of forthcoming improvements that are gradually being released each month to stop these kinds of programs.
I am satisfied that PokerStars is working on it.
I have not played a cash game since finding out about poker data syphoning. I wonder if this will be enough to make me feel comfortable.
