Full Tilt Update. Broken Poker Copilot. Sigh.

Creating software as a sorta, kinda add-on for other software can be headache-inducing, when there’s no official integration involved. There’s no well-defined interface between Poker Copilot and the online poker rooms. The hand history files which Poker Copilot uses have no published specification, and occasionally the format of those files changes slightly enough to break Poker Copilot.

And so every time Full Tilt Poker or PokerStars releases an update, I hold my breath, waiting to see if any damage has been done. Full Tilt and PokerStars seem to be in an arms race, so the updates come often. Which means I hold my breath far too often. It’s not healthy!

Full Tilt released an update yesterday. Overnight my inbox filled up with “Full Tilt Update Breaks Poker Copilot” messages. So enough writing for now. Time for some fixing.
