Cake Poker has dropped its long-time resistance to heads up display programs such as Poker Tracker and Hold’em Manager which are now allowed across the network.

Intertops Poker confirmed the move, which went live on November 9, saying, "… we are in the process of making some further changes to allow players to use 3rd party software that provide HUD’s such as Poker Tracker and Hold’em Manager.

“In a live game players are permitted to take notes on any opponent that they play against.

“In the past we always provided this capability for our players but we never allowed any 3rd party software vendors that gave players enhanced note taking and hand history information.

“As always players are encouraged to change their nickname every 7 days to combat any form of tracking if they wish. We are still 100% against any form of HH sharing or reselling.”
