The Next Poker Copilot Update will be Faster

How much faster? That depends on which Poker Copilot feature you are using. Here’s some time trials for importing 560,000 hands:

A 20% improvement. But as loyal Poker Copilot customer Keith X recently stated in a blog comment, “Import time is almost meaningless to me, once the DB is set up I never have to worry about it. So I’d suggest you always make the import time vs. HUD / stats refresh time tradeoff in favor of the actual playing elements.” I agree with Keith X. So let’s look at how long the stats take to update. The following chart is for 560,000 hands, of which roughly 460,000 are ring game hands and 100,000 are tournament hands. All times are in seconds:

Every category except “Ring Game Players Summary” shows improvement. In some cases the improvement is remarkable: only 1/1000th of the time previously needed, so that it doesn’t get even a smidgin of a bar in the chart. In other cases, the improvement is more modest.

Here’s the data in tabular form:

I hope to make every screen much faster than before. I’m still struggling a bit with Hands Summaries and Players Summaries and I want to get it right before I do the next update.
