The House Dick

When the IGC put out a call for applicants for the contract, they gave a detailed description of what information they wanted:

Data Fields: At a minimum, IGC requires capture of numerous fields of data, including transaction date, capture of credit card numbers, expiration dates, zip code, numeric address, cardholder name as it appears on the card, vendor identification number, and vendor sub-identification number.

In addition, the vendor should be prepared to capture non credit card data, such as passwords, e-mail addresses, additional address and name information, phone numbers, fields related to money order payments, wire transfers, incoming checks and other forms of payments from consumers to operators. The database should be designed to allow for evolution of the design, number of fields and relational operation. 5

This is the database to beat. While the IGC's Risk Management Database is geared to the current concerns of fraud and chargebacks, they clearly want something flexible enough to address any revenue drain that becomes a concern, which could come to include matchplay hustlers. Note that in addition to all the obvious information used to identify problem players, they also Plan to record the sacrosanct passwords. If con artists use all different card numbers, names, and addresses, they could still be tripped up for reusing their password.

Size Matters
First of all, your exposure to risk, as well as your ability to subject your opponents to risk, is limited, not by a restriction on the bet amount, but by the amount of chips you have in front of you. That's why I think a better name for "no-limit" would be "table limit." The size of your stack has a huge impact on your strategy and that of your opponents.
