Changes to PokerStars rules for HUDs

PokerStars has changed the rules about what they will allow in poker tracking software and poker HUDS that their customers use. This will affect Poker Copilot. Here’s what we need to change in the next update of Poker Copilot, in order to meet the new PokerStars rules:

  • The HUD can’t show player icons on PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. PokerStars states that our software “can’t rate, label, categorise, or stereotype based on tendencies.”
  • Our HUD colour schemes must be restricted to only two thresholds. From the examples PokerStars has given us, I interpret this to mean three colours. eg VPIP is green below 20%, yellow between 20% and 40%, red above 40%. The two thresholds are 20% and 40%.

We need to make these changes because it would be a business disaster for us if PokerStars banned Poker Copilot. All poker software companies have been given until late September to make the necessary changes.
