The world’s biggest online poker sites are currently on crusades to end some of the negative practices that scare off recreational players. Last month it was PokerStars announcing measures to eliminate bumhunting in heads-up cash games. Now, this month, it’s 888poker launching a mission to discourage ‘table camping.’ If you’re unfamiliar with table camping, this practice sees certain players abuse the ‘sit out’ option in cash games to avoid paying blinds. The way it works is that a player will sit out when the blinds come around to them and then wait for a break in action. An example of …
