I'm not saying my play is great... and I *am* loose. But I am not usually exactly 'passive'.
Then it dawned on me that bad information is good for me. I imagine it just doesn't have enough hands on me yet. Prolly someone with the software was sitting at a table for 25 hands when I was tilted or something.
By the way, I think Sharkscope and Poker-edge are massive collusion and consider them tools of the slightly dishonest. I imagine there may be much disagreement with that statement here.
It can't and won't base stats. simply on 25hands played. If you were to check a new player, they won't have stats. till they've played approx. 30+ sngs &/or mtts. Unfortunately (for you maybe) it's based on EVERY single hand you've ever played online on that particular site,... not just some segment of 25hands one day.
Pretty much every MTT I've been (or was railing a friend) I'm pretty sure that ALOT of the regulars are running stats on OPR (or similiar,.. I prefer OPR due to it's accuracy, although use another one for it's simplistic appearance and bein' user friendly),... not pretty sure,.. actually KNOW they are. Why not discover who's a regular on your table,.. why not want to know also who's a regular loser and who's running hot on your table or who's a newbie?? Seems pretty much like common sense to me.
Also happen to know that some of the members on the PokerEdge site are pounding the MTTs, with profits in excess of $100K (one dude's got a $3800 built-in massaging, leather recliner that looks like it's from StarWars, with a stripper pole mounted in his livingroom with two large rotating bad-azz monster-sized LCD screens to multi-table in large buy-in MTTs on,(can probably now afford to have the pole occupied with peelers during the 4min. breaks too, ha ha ha).. one screen can also rotate for the other LazyBoy recliner so a buddy can play too, lol,..... over a $10g setup in all,.. maybe a tad excessive but hey.. it's his 'job' and he seems to be enjoying it, lol.... sounds kinda cool to me actually,... maybe (just maybe though) even cooler than purposefully tossing some cheap sngs to lower your sharkscope stats. or continuing to play in too many hands even though you know you're too loose preflop with your starting hand requirements, aren't doing the greatest with it but continue to do so anyways (action junkie comes to mind??)... yah.. that's way cooler imo??
Yah.. I'm just gonna hope for miracle flops and hittin' 2-outers instead.. those 'cheaters' can have it for themselves.
