I posted this in a thread where Lee Jones asked the 2+2 community whether Pokerstars should block 3rd party sites from accessing posted Pokerstars info like tourney results - the most obvious issue is thepokerdb.com -
here's what I wrote...
I would like to go on record as saying I would like pokerdb to continue tracking my results and the results that are publically posted for ALL to see already and would like pokerstars to not make it more difficult -
my results since 2005 have certainly inspired me to improve my game, and that's a nice summarization of stuff we've done that we would like to keep track of and I am just totally down with pokerdb.com
I think it's good if for no other reason then 3rd party auditing of people that seem to play a lot of final tables together?
nothing is to be gained by hiding this info. It's also a good indicator. When a guy starts throwing your tourney stats in your face, you know you MIGHT have him on tilt
