Online gambling giant Bodog has taken a large step in cutting out data mining in its newest poker software.
Bodog's new software is due to drop this week and claims to have the goal of offering all players the "fairest place to play". Sometimes, players use data mining techniques to establish an edge by deciphering information from the sites.
Professional players are not the only ones who may be left out in the cold by this new software. Online poker data website Pokerscout would also lose its ability to report statistics from one of the world's largest poker sites.
PokerScout has not yet issued comment on Bodog's new software, and this story will be updated as soon as we have relevant information.
