One member of our Recommended Software program on, Tournament Shark, has received an extreme makeover. The popular SNG Tool and Heads-Up Display (HUD) has seen mucked hands added to it. Now, when you use Tournament Shark, you can see the mucked hands of your opponents. It’s just another way that the program, which is compatible with sites like Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, is giving the industry a run for its money.

In addition, under the “Select Table” menu within Tournament Shark, you’ll be able to access a new “Find Table” tool that can be attached to any table. In addition, the software now includes multi-language support, so you’ll be able to use it in your native tongue. Many developers have not taken the time to distribute software in other languages besides English. Now, that functionality exists within Tournament Shark and can be accessed with ease.

Tournament Shark is compatible with Full Tilt Poker, sites like bwin on the Ongame Network, PokerStars, and iPoker Network rooms like Mansion Poker and Titan Poker. One of its sister programs from Poker Pro Labs, Smart Buddy, has also seen a bevy of rooms added to its arsenal. Now, Smart Buddy supports PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Bodog, Absolute Poker, Ultimate Bet, rooms on the iPoker Network, bwin, PartyPoker, and sites on Boss Media’s International Poker Network, which include Paradise Poker and Poker Heaven. Functionality for the massive Cake Poker Network will be added soon. That family of sites includes goliaths like Cake Poker, Doyle’s Room, and Poker Host.

Smart Buddy will also be receiving a Table Viewer in the near future, which its developers are extremely excited about. Meanwhile, Top Shark has received a facelift of sorts. Support for the Cake Poker Network is also coming soon and you can now upload missed tournaments. Top Shark is a free stats tracker, also from Poker Pro Labs, that collects information from the world’s largest online poker sites. Our review of Top Shark notes, “Considering this is a free service, Top Shark is a fun place to track tournament results for friends or villains that you play against. Also listed are pros that many poker aficionados follow, making it a lot of fun to use. For players who compete in any tournament type, using Top Shark is a no-brainer.”

Our Recommended Software program has seen several tools added in recent days, including IdleMiner,, and Poker Wingman. Each is invaluable to your success as an online poker player. IdleMiner is one of the industry’s top data mining solutions, while includes a buddy list feature and hand history utility. Poker Wingman is a jazzed-up odds calculator that is a member of our Free Software program. Within each Recommended Software review, you’ll find an interview with the program’s developers and updates straight from the source.
