This is a question which splits our membership. Some members love the way MySnookerStats tracks every detail of their game – including advanced stats like potting success, safety success and shot time, but others find it intrusive to record every shot, especially during periods of play when there’s no score.
Of course, we want to keep all our members happy… which is why MySnookerStats can run in either Standard or Professional modes.
In Professional mode, by pressing the “missed pot” button or the “play safe” button, you can collect the detailed stats you need to really dig into the strengths and weaknesses of your game. But if you’re more interested just in tracking your breaks and positional percentage (which is the single most important indicator of your ability), then Standard Mode is the right choice for you.
In Standard mode, you don’t need to track every missed pot or safety shot – you just need to press a button when there’s a pot or a foul.
Standard mode scoring is ideal for snooker clubs and organizations wanting to get the full benefit of our MySnookerStats Tournaments product. It’s so easy to use that even players taking part can score matches for themselves. They get their stats without feeling like the app is affecting their concentration at all.
MySnookerStats starts out in Standard Mode, but you can switch to Professional Mode (or back again) whenever you like – just not half way through recording a match! Just use the Settings option on the Main Menu and make your choice.
