There are some settings in SharkScope Desktop that you can use to reduce the number of searches used. This comes at the price of less information.
To reduce searches:
- Go to Tools -> Preferences… (on Windows) or SharkScope Desktop -> Preferences… on Mac.
- Ensure Cache player info for 24 hours is selected.
- Change Minimum hands before fetching info to a higher number than the default of 1. Change it to “5”, and you’ll never use a search for players at a table for less than five hands.
- Select Use Searches for tournaments only
