Sharkscope - Yeay or nay?
So I'm sure most of you SnG players are aware of sharkscope
and I was just wondering what people thought of it.
I don't subscribe but I do buy 200 searches every so often, I used to use it as a way of tracking my own game (mainly because I'm on a Mac and Poker Tracker doesnt work on Mac) Recently I have started scoping all the people at my tables and making player notes on everybody. This really opened my eyes to the large amount of losing players at every table. On average there is only 2 winning players per table - meaning it is helping me catagorise my opponents quickly.
The problem I have is when get carried away against a Fish? For example yesterday I was playing a $10 SnG on FTP and during the first level I picked up AQos in the cut-off and a Fish limped in first. I raised it 3BB's and the fish calls. I by default put him on some kind of PP.
Flop comes A55 - he checks, I bet half pot and he calls, so I figure he has like 88 or something. Turn Comes 2 and fish checks, so I figure I'm probably still good and fire out another half pot bet and he flat pushes. Normally I would give the guy credit and think about passing, but as he is a fish I decided to call. Turns out he had limped UTG with 85os and then called my raise and got lucky. Didn't bust me but did some damage. So the point of the story is was catagorising my opponents by using sharkscope
helpful or not?
