A new feature released by SNG tracking site Sharkscope aims to fight collusion by pointing at players who help each other for their combined advantage. The function is available to Gold account users upwards and is activated once a particular sit and go has ended.
In essence, the software identifies enhanced performance by two players when they are on the same table by matching the data against the score of these users when they compete on different tables.
To enable the feature, a “Detect for Collusion” button, which appears next to single table tournament results, will have to be pressed. The software will then issue a report for any suspected dishonest activity.
