Wanted to know viewers opinion of the usefulness of statistical tools/info like Sharkscope. Do you find it useful and in what situations ? My stats are all positive, at what point would you recommend blocking your name on Sharkscope ? Thanks for any feedback ....
I occasionally have used sharkscope to see what the world thinks of someone I was thinking an unusual player. Maybe I was impressed with his play, or repulsed, sharkscope just gave me a bit more info. I do not remember if it helped me in the game tho.

Since I don't play many SnGs, I very rarely use Sharkscope at all anymore.

I used sharkscope to look at myself and was thoroughly discouraged and vowed never to play poker again. Then I said to myself, "Self, you may not look good on paper, but your bankroll keeps going up. Forget that site."

I subscribe to sharkscope and use it constantly. I find it a better tool, combined with PT, to track my own stats since I almost exclusively play SnGs (with MTTs).
I usually scope everyone once it gets down to 5 players and write the players ROI and money won into their notes. When I play that person again and any significant time has elapsed, I then update the notes. It is very useful to know if someone is a complete fish or a very adapt LAG.
