Every game you play is scored. Your score determines how much in-game credits (Shark Points) you earn in Grind Mode or how many Experience Points (XP) and Ranking Points (RP) you gain in Contender Mode.
To score you must earn Shark Awards. Some Shark Awards are collectable only once per game, others can be collected multiple times. You can earn several different Shark Awards during a single hand. Your final game score is calculated by adding up the value of all the earned Shark Awards and deducting any excessive use of abilities.
