PokerUpdate previously reported the rise in DDoS attacks, when a players network connection is impaired by a third party, particularly in high stakes cash games when the connection is lost during a big pot.
Bodog Poker Network’s President Jonas Odman commented: “This latest twist in player protection is not something anybody can have foreseen but does add weight to the argument for poker rooms to offer anonymity for ALL players.”
He continues: “Anonymous tables are the fairest way for everybody to play poker: a recreational player is protected from those who buy player data and pros are protected from being singled out in this way. Buying player data is not something a real poker player should need to resort to anyway and the industry as a whole would be better off if other operators embraced anonymity in the way Bodog has.”

Are anonymous tables the answer in resolving DDoS attacks? Should “real poker players” need to rely on player data? Let us know your thoughts.
