Starring Hands for Later Review

Sometimes while playing online poker, I find myself wanting to look closely at a hand that went unexpectedly. I can’t do it while playing so I need a way to remind myself to go back later and look at it.

The next update of Poker Copilot will solve this problem by introducing starred hands:

You can filter by starred hands:

Poker Copilot’s Head-up Display (HUD) has a new icon to let you star the previous hand played at the table:

This is a seemingly simple addition that turns out to be hard to implement well. There were several design issues and threading issues that I had to solve.
