I have no idea why in the world the IRS would care about transactions, let's call them poker hands, that take place on a website with a currency called $weeps Cash.

I used to play the play money on Stars poker, and the IRS never came looking for info about how many millions I had on there.

What the IRS WILL care about is the transactions where money comes into my PayPal account. But I have records of that, they are on PayPal.

So if Stars one day up and decides they would 1:1 trade their plat money for USD and deposit into my PayPal... then the IRS is going to want to know. But until that day comes, they are just some made up numbers on some website.

And before the comment comes in, "But my $weeps Cash is the money I put on the site." Incorrect sir. You bought Gold Coins. The $weeps Cash is a bonus. Just like if you bought play chips on Stars, they hold no USD value.

What's the difference between having your own hands and anonymous opponents and table replays with.... anonymous opponents?
The difference I see is that if all of the hands were available for download, if you could find the hands you played, and knew which players were at your table, you could then work with the data and begin to put stats together. Would it be the dreaded (this word said tongue in cheek) real time HUDs people worry about? Nope. But it would begin to tell patterns.

Now all of that to say... and feel free to quote me later, I could see being able to screen scrape the active screen you are on with some clever software and make a real time hud. The data is decrypted somewhere on your computer when you see the table and the action that is happening. If it wasn't, you wouldn't be able to see it.

This means that somewhere in there, if you could find it, you could capture all of that info and make the real time HUD. No idea how much work this would take, but for sure it is possible.

So I think it gets back to what gluten free said above:

Re: global poker enhancement suite?

Why is everyone so afraid of HUD's by the way? It's very millennial.

I mean I'm fine without them, but fine with them too.

The question is in case I will do it myself. The hand converter to PT4 format. Will it break the TOS? GP please reply.
Hi niosocket,

Yes this will break the ToS

Thanks

Wouldn't twitch streaming be against your ToS as well?

good question, or how about even watching a twitch broadcast?

With the recent addition of rule 8, as somebody already mentioned it could be interpreted that using notepad, ms word or excel to manually input ones own results is against TOS. I'd imagine looking up players on sharkscope could also be viewed as a violation. Not sure about handwritten notes on napkins.

Re: global poker enhancement suite?

Other concern is:
1. How does Global detect people using illegal software?

Fair if you donít want to delve into the secrets of identifying people.

2. Has anyone been caught using illegal software yet?

Itís going to turn out like other sites eventually where people are illegally using seat scripts or huds especially for the amount of money at play here. Itís unrealistic to think no 10/20 reg is going to use one.

Re: global poker enhancement suite?

You guys are donks if your wondering why Global doesn't want to allow hands to be tracked etc. Who care if you look at your hand histories or not. Its full of fish. If you need to look at hand histories to beat fish god help you. Trust me its much safer to play with no hand histories then having hand histories and if you don't know why your a complete donk.

The reason these donks want a hand history just so global knows is cause they want to look at their win rate and nice graph while they push their glasses up to type on 2+2 how great of a player they are. They wanna show off. I get it. It is nice to look at a nice graph going up vs fish so we can tell everyone we are pros its nice ego booster but its not needed.

They just want something like shark scope for cash games so they can look at dat beautiful graph rising and some sort of roi. So if you can invent something like that I think it would make these cash game playas happy.

If other poker sites can catch people using illegal things so can global. Don't play with dat fiya unless u wanna get your @ss burned. I know people done this on poker sites keep pushing the legalities of what they can use on the site and their bank rolls got taken from them. Don't play with that fiya trust me on that one. You get to sit with fish all day stop the whining geez. This site is wonderful place to play compared to what I been dealing with over the years. I am just happy no russians.

Damn, no more napkins for me I guess. At least they allow to make notes on players. Not sure how it is rec friendly. Probably going to cancel it next.

Thing is other poker sites donít catch people using illegal software, bots, seat scripters etc. Considering Global has difficulty even catching obvious dumpers in the sngs then I have no faith in them. This is a real concern.
