Bodog Introduces New Anonymous Poker Tables

Site Also Allows Player To Rabbit Hunt

In February, Card Player reported that Bodog would begin an effort to block data mining software from their site in order to appeal to the more casual online poker player. On Wednesday, the site announced the introduction of anonymous poker tables.

The new feature blocks the use of HUDs (Heads Up Displays) and doesn’t allow data-mining sites to collect statistics on the site’s players.

“We believe that introducing these features makes the Bodog Recreational Poker Model a pioneer in the online poker world and offers all players of all abilities the fairest place to play,” said site representative Jonas Odman. “We have shown before that we are not afraid of controversy by changing the way rakeback was viewed and starting to block data mining sites earlier this year and these new features now give players a less biased ‘pure poker’ experience. To my mind the software and Bodog’s Recreational Poker Model is a genuine game changer.”

The site also announced a new “rabbit cam,” which allows players to see which cards would have been dealt even after the hand is won.

Bodog’s other announced changes include in-client Blackjack, new tournament formats, improved site speed and the ability to play up to 20 tables at a time.

Yea Yea Yea they put all that new shit in there but they took out the ability to move your player at the table to front and center giving you a more realistic view. I'm not playing upside down and by leaving that out they might as well go back to Planet Poker.I called in and cashed out. Looking for another site.

I understand wanting to appeal to the "recreational" player but in addition to not being able to choose your relative seat position at the table, you also can not take notes on players which removes one of the biggest aspects of the game. The new software is less friendly to the user which goes against what the original concept of "new and improved!" is. I am disappointed.

THOSE CLOWNS IN UPPER MGMT AT BODOG NEED TO CONCOCT A NEW NAME FOR THIS GAME THEY'VE CREATED....ITS NOT POKER....THE ANONIMITY FACTOR NEGATES ALL THAT POKER REPRESENTS...I CANT WRAP MY MIND AROUND THE FOOLISH DECISIONS THAT ARE BEING MADE AT BODOG...THIS MOVE WILL OBV ALIENATE THEIR CORE CUSTOMERS.

I agree with the above posts. If you walked into a casino and you were an intermediate player and the table you wanted to play had Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negraneu, Johnny Chan and Phil Helmuth sitting at it, you might just watch or take the day off. If the same table was full of Japanese tourists you couldn't wait to sit down.

One of the biggest advantages of poker is table selection. Not knowing who is sitting at your table does not help. I played on Bodog and if 1 shark was sitting at a table I would play and just be careful when they were in the hand. If I logged on and 3 sharks were at the table I would look for another table. This is how you play poker.

Now that I do not have table selection or seat selection I have downloaded Carbon Poker and deposited money. Now I just have to get my money back from Bodog.
