A Breakthrough in Poker Copilot Performance

I’ve been struggling in my attempts to make the Player Summary in Poker Copilot go fast. So today, I set about rethinking the problem, and I think I’ve hit on a solution.

I asked myself, what are you most likely using the Player Summary for. My best guess: to look up info on players you are currently facing. So then, why show players you haven’t encountered for six months?

So here’s what I’m proposing for a coming Poker Copilot update: By default, the Player Summary will only show players you’ve encountered in the last 30 days. Here’s a shot of how it may be controlled:

By default that checkbox will be checked.

If you faced philivey a few days ago, then he will show in this screen, and all his hands matching the current filter will be shown, even the data older than the last 30 days.

I think this is a nice compromise: a speed-up for the most common case, but a quick override when you really want to see more data.
