Sharkscope Releases Collusion Detection Feature

Collusion at sit and gos has been a long-standing problem that players have faced since the advent of online poker. To try to tackle this problem, SNG tracking site Sharkscope has released a new feature that will help identify possible colluders at sit and gos which have been completed.

The new feature, which is available to Gold and above subscribers, will help detect possible collusion where two or more players are playing together as a team for their combined advantage (sharing card information, chip dumping etc). The feature can detect performance improvements when two players are at the same table. Essentially, the software will determine how much better two select players perform at the same table versus when they are not at the same table.

Using the new feature is simple. When looking at the results of a single table tournament, a player will simply have to click a “Detect for Collusion” button. Players will be able to report any suspicious activity directly from the software. Here is a preview of Sharkscope’s new collusion feature:
