Sharkscope is already on 'Stars list of banned programs, so I'd advise against having it running while you're on the site.

Are you telling me that Stars knows the websites you're browsing while you're playing poker? That seems a little far-fetched and, if true, a little invasive.

they are the worst thing for online poker

I agree. They are simply making the game a tougher one to beat by making this data accessible and tangible.

my brother is a high winning cash player and uses sngs to dick around and push all-in every hand. its funny when he is playing 3/6, 5/10, or 10/20NL and people at his table are like "hahaha you are -2k on sharkscope!!!!" probably makes him tons of money of idiots thinking he sucks based off this.

These sites and the whole culture surrounding them are terrible for online poker imo and it'd be cool to see them disappear. It won't happen though.

I wonder what it'd do to big live games if there was a big ranking list in Bellagio that'd say "Sammy Farha -10m" etc.

They're fun to look at, but you're absolutely right. I know at least one losing player who has quit PokerStars b/c he heard sharkscope mentioned in chat, looked up his own stats compared to others, and realized how Broke he was.

Ps: I have a few friends with quite bad sharkscope graphs, they just go there when they are doing well.


And if someone quits playing because Sharkscope makes them realize they have a gambling problem , then thats good.

Now im on the leaderboard and fu to the haters.
