The very useful MarketPulse section has been augmented by 8 new tracking facilities, enhancing the original MarketPulse features of biggest pots won and a player search function profiling over 3.4 million online players.
The new additions include the following key elements:
* 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.
* 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).
* 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.
* 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.
The star attraction of the new features is the top moneymakers/biggest losses lists, giving an appreciation of who the true high-rollers in the game are month-to-month.
