It’s back to online poker of yesteryear suggests one member of the popular Two Plus Two poker forum as Cool Hand Poker this past week introduced anonymous cash tables, which supposedly prevent poker players from becoming targets of sharks and full time hustlers. 

Seems like a pretty massive breeding ground for cheating,” commented one forum member.

Others disagreed however.  Another responded:

“There is no reason whatsoever to think that there will be more cheating on these tables, as a matter of fact they will get special attention from the Fraud and Collusion security team.

“The Security team got full access to Hand Histories with both the players alias, and 'Player 2' table name.
“You as a player will still have the advantage of knowing the player in your session, but you nor they can not track past hand histories, nor buy stats from data miners.”

Cool Hand gives three reasons why anonymous cash tables benefit players:

• You can play without anyone identifying you at the tables - no alias, no identity

• Nobody can build a history of your hands or predict your game-play based on this data

• No tracking software can be used against you"

Cool Hand Poker ironically operates on the Microgaming Poker Network, which has been embroiled in a cheating scandal in the past.

One member of the Two Plus Two forum commented:

“Microgaming has a history of accusing players of cheating and stealing their money while allowing site operators to steal millions and do nothing. There is no way in hell I would trust MG with these type of tables. They are going to accuse players of cheating and the players won't even know who "player 3" is that they allegedly colluded with. This is a terrible idea, maybe on a credible network it could work out but not MG.”
