Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) August 4, 2008
New tracking categories include the top 100 moneymakers and top 100 money losers, the top 100 most aggressive and least aggressive players and more, bringing the total to over 25 industry-leading measures and further cementing MarketPulse as the premier source for free online poker stats.
"Being an industry leader, we've invested an incredible amount of time and effort in perfecting our data gathering," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director for PokerListings.com, "and we're continuously expanding our technology base to provide the most innovative and interesting new reports for online poker fans.
"Not only is the new data a remarkable look inside the numbers that drive online poker from day-to-day, the information we now monitor covers such a wide range it can be of interest to absolutely anyone - from a casual player with just a passing interest to the most dedicated grinders, stat hounds or industry observers.
"Everything from where to find the juiciest shorthanded No-Limit Hold'em games to how much Gus Hansen threw around at the Pot-Limit Omaha tables last night is now available, and simply put, there's no other operation worldwide collecting anywhere near the volume of online poker data MarketPulse is.
"it's an absolutely unmatched resource."
The complete list of new additions:
1. Near "real-time" lists of the top 100 moneymakers and top 100 money losers in online poker over the last day, week, month and year based on millions of cash-game hands tracked by the MarketPulse software.
2. Near "real-time" lists of the top 100 most aggressive and top 100 least aggressive players in online poker based on the PokerListings.com "Aggression Factor" (bets+raises/calls).
3. Near "real-time" lists of the 100 players in online poker with the highest BB/100 and lowest BB/100 over the last day, week, month and year (BB/100 = Big Bets won per 100 hands played and is considered the truest measure of a player's success).
4. Near "real-time" lists of the 100 players in online poker with the Highest VP$IP and Lowest VP$IP over the last day, week, month and year (VP$IP = Voluntarily Put Money In Pot and is a general measure of loose or tight play).
"The monitoring and gathering of this data is extremely complex and the net result of years of development," adds Mayen. "We're absolutely breaking new ground with MarketPulse, and the power of this data is virtually limitless.
"We hope all online poker players and industry observers take advantage, and encourage them to come back for new industry-changing reports in the near future."
