LockPoker Adds SharkScope Player Stats in Enhanced anti-Online Poker Cheating Application

The online poker site, which is a part of the Merge Poker Network, is scheduled to launch its new Player Dashboard that is now featuring SharkScope’s very well-received advanced player stats, which is intergrated directly into the client. LockPoker CEO Jennifer Larson states that you as the player can "view your own stats, search for your opponents stats, shop at the Lock store, and much more all within the same secure application. Lock is the first and only Poker room to develop a unified tool like this. One of our mandates as a company is to provide a superior online poker experience. We are determined to take this industry by storm and innovate in every possible way we can. The player comes first at Lock and that will always drive our business development."

This sounds to me like a significant move in the online poker industry's continuing battle against online poker cheats, which has intensified over the past few months, which have seen concentrated bot and collusion rings operating out of China and Korea.

LockPoker began its anti-online poker-cheat war when it hired successful professional poker player Eric "Rizen" Lynch as its vice president of product development. Now by incorporating SharkScope, has really sent in the reinforcements to the online poker-cheating battlefield.
