Online Poker Media Coverage About Security and Hand Histories

In recent days, PartyPoker has announced a misguided plan to remove player access to downloadable hand histories in their online poker games. †

Hand histories are fundamental to the trust that players place in online poker sites. Time and time again, hand histories have been essential in protecting players against cheating – cheating by both other players and by the site itself. It is very unsafe to play at an online poker operator that does not allow players to keep their own hand histories.

Here’s some media coverage on the issue with various quotes and interviews with me throughout:
