    JULY or August contest

    Think it would be a good idea if one of the mods set up a contest on cake or merge... 45 or 90 man SNG or DON .... somewhat like what dyehard initiated a couple months ago.

    We would like to consider something like this Shaun, but have two concerns...

    1. Does anyone know if Sharkscope is accurately tracking results on these sites?

    2. Our traffic has died down substantially since Black Friday, so we are concerned about not having enough participation. We can address this one by having anyone who would be interested in a contest like this post in this thread.

    I'll check around on the SS forums. Participation may be low in comparison to our last, record setting contest. However, I would expect/hope that it would be comparable to some of those early contests held 2 and 3 years ago.

    I had a merge account years ago and Sharkscope was very accurate then. Just looked at their main site. Copy/Paste from front page

Support for Cereus, MicroGaming, Bodog, LSP (New), Everleaf, MicroGame, PokerClub, PartyPoker.it, Entraction, Everest.fr and Winamax.fr is now in Beta test.

    I didn't see any info with regards to Merge and Cake tracking issues. I created a thread to get a feel for any issues.

    I personally will only play on pokerstars at the moment, i just dont trust these other sites with whats happened, at least my money feels secure on stars (though realise that doesnt help US players).

    Also think you would struggle getting the volume in on the cake network, the games fill up very slowly. Thought merge had stopped US Players?
