Collusion Concerns Addressed with Bodog's Software Update

Royal Flush Spades

Anonymous poker tables are one of the latest tools used to hide each player's identity at online poker tables; the goal being to prevent opponents at the online tables from using HUDs and other data-mining software to gather and maintain information on a player. Late last year Bodog introduced anonymous poker tables to provide a comfortable playing environment for their casual players.

Concerns were immediately raised by players when the new tables were initiated – the possibility of collusion was rearing its ugly head. On Thursday, May 15th, Bodog released new software that will allow players to request hand histories 24 hours after a game ends which should ease the fears of concerned players. Being able to review the hands includes hole card information for players that were in a hand. It should go without saying that if a player suspects collusion, they should immediately contact Bodog's security team.

Bodog said, "Once all the noise of whining poker 'pros' who could no longer use software allowing access to data on how you play your game against Bodog players died down the only credible complaint was the threat of collusion."

Jonas Odman, VP of the Bodog Poker Network added."The fact that we can now offer players this information is another advantage of our anonymous tables and something nobody else can offer. Collusion is a natural concern for any poker room but this new additional feature puts the player in full control. This makes the Bodog Poker Network the fairest place to play poker online in the world."
