Can I import into Poker Copilot hands that I purchased?

I’ve been asked this question via e-mail at least once a day lately. So I’ve made the position very clear in a FAQ entry:

The official answer from Full Tilt Support:

“We can confirm with you that Poker Copilot is allowed to be used as long as it contains only hand histories from hands in which you yourself have participated.”


“The bottom line is that you are not permitted to view hand histories that you did not participate in.”

The official answer from PokerStars:

“The practice of datamining (observing games without playing in order to build up a database of hand histories for future reference) is prohibited.”

Our position:

We don’t want Poker Copilot banned. And we don’t want our customers’ accounts frozen. Therefore we don’t allow importing of purchased, observed, or datamined hands.
