PartyPoker tracking upgraded

We have now improved our Party Poker tracking to 95% of all games from the previous 70%. In addition to this we have also added full Tournament Selector support and the ability to search by Tournament ID for running and registering games, either by the table id (the first id number shown in the lobby) or by tourney ID which is shown directly on the Party Poker STT tables.

Coverage of the network added

We have now added full coverage of the network which is the exclusively Italian version of Party Poker. Coverage includes the tournament selector, searching by tournament id on running and registering games, and the tracking of sit and go and scheduled tournament results.

Win PimpinDonks coaching, $$, SharkScope subscriptions and more

Come join the first ever SharkScopers leaderboard challenge. We have tons of prizes up for grab for the top 10 finishers of both the US and the non-US leaderboards. The challenge for this leaderboard will be to win the most double or nothing sng’s in a row.

The prizes include (6) private coaching sessions with PimpinDonk (Mark Schmid), monthly and yearly subscriptions to SharkScope, SharkScopers credit bundles, and cash. In total we’ll be giving away more then $3,000 in cash and prizes between the US and non-US leaderboards.

PimpinDonks has coached several students, who have went on to become very profitable poker players. In his recent coaching group, his students have earned more then $31,000, not including rakeback. Here’s his description of how he coaches students online

“We then do 1 of 3 things. First, and most popular is to go over hand histories of sngs/mtts that the student has already played. I explain the hands I would have played differently and fix any mistakes I see right away. So they get leaks fixed after 1 session with this method. Second, we can go over hand histories of tournaments I have played and it tough spots I ask them what they would do and explain why I did the plays I did. Third, we can have a Q&A session. They prepare questions ahead of time or tough hands they played and I answer questions they have about any poker related topics. We can also discuss poker concepts or go over areas of the game they struggle with.”

Set up your Blogroll on SharkScopers

We’ve implemented a new blogroll feature so that bloggers can display a list of their favorite blogs. This was blogroll.gifrequested feature (by our member, TripleAceIRL) that we agreed is an essential option for all blogs. You can add either bloggers from SharkScopers or other websites — no restrictions. This optional feature is located on the sidebar of your own blog.

Adding someone’s blog to your blogroll is considered a big compliment, and visa versa. It’s a way of telling that person that you follow/support their blog, and to encourage your readers to check their site out. If you have friends who blog, you should also encourage them to link to your blog, to gain more readers / commentors.

We also brought back and slightly improved the blog archive feature that we used to have on the beta site. You can now see a summary of each users posts per month and read all of their monthly archives.

We’re now accepting MoneyBookers payments

We’ve added MoneyBookers as a new payment option for Purchasing credits on SharkScopers. Moneybookers is a similar payment processor to PayPal, but they’re available in a lot of places where PayPal isnt.

If you already use PayPal and are happy with the service, then stick with PayPal. If PayPal isn’t available to you or if you’re looking for a different option, MoneyBookers is probably the best choice.


Scheduled & Super Turbo Leaderboards Added

In response to user requests Sharkscope has now added a number of new leaderboards.

The new leaderboards are:

  • Any Game 5-6 Seated Super Turbo
  • Holdem 9-10 Seated Super Turbo
  • Scheduled
  • Scheduled by Network

So now Super Turbo tournaments no longer count towards the old Turbo leaderboards.
