Coming in the next update: VPIP by position

Today I made internal adjustments to Poker Copilot so that it can calculate VPIP by position:

This is how Poker Copilot’s “More” -> “Advanced” filter currently looks in my office.

There’s a lot of work still to get this ready for you to use though. Some screens will need to be redesigned and tested.

A Nice Email…in French

After today’s update to fix a Winamax issue, a satisfied customer writes:


Je tenais à écrire à ce mot pour vous exprimer ma pleine satisfaction de votre service clientèle et de vos collaborateurs.

A chaque sollicitation de ma part, j’ai toujours eu une réponse rapide, agréable, claire et une solution. Et tout malgré mes mails écrits en français ! A regret mais mon anglais est très basique et les traducteurs existant ne sont pas très efficace.

Encore une fois, félicitations pour votre réactivité, efficacité et courtoisie de votre service clientèle.


With Google Translate I got the gist, and it was pleasant. That’s the thing when something goes wrong in your business; it gives you the chance to turn unhappy people into happy people.

Poker Copilot Tip: Move HUD Panels without the Full Statistics Popup

You can move around Poker Copilot’s HUD panels without the full popup getting in the way. Hold down the “cmd” key when you click on a player’s HUD panel and the stat sheet won’t appear. This is an obscure and undocumented feature that has been present for almost as long as the HUD.

Update for Winamax Users

It seems Winamax has just released version 2 of their Mac software. Congratulations Winamax team.

The new version seems to fix an issue with dates and times in their hand history files. Poker Copilot expects this to be wrong, depending on your timezone, so has been autocorrecting it. Unfortunately as of the new Winamax update, Poker Copilot is auto-miscorrecting it.

Here is an unreleased update which you can download if this problem is affecting you.

Please do write in the comments whether this update fixes the issue for you.



Poker Copilot 3.08 Now Available

Poker Copilot 3.08 is now available to download.

Unfortunately the auto-updater embedded in 3.07 is not working correctly, so you’ll need to do this update manually.

What’s changed:

  • Zoom Poker now works at lower window size (minimum 1039×732)
  • Added Aced Poker support
  • Added BestPoker support
  • Added SuperBook support

Update Instructions:

  1. Click here to start downloading Poker Copilot 3.08.
  2. Open the downloaded file.
  3. Drag the Poker Copilot icon to the Applications icon. If prompted to replace an existing version, confirm that you do want to replace.

Now you are done and ready to hit the tables.

Coming soon: For the rest of this week I’ll be adding some new statistics.

Poker Copilot and Zoom Poker: Update

I spent some time today getting Poker Copilot’s Experiment Zoom Poker HUD working with slightly smaller windows than before. You can now have the Zoom Poker window at a minimum size of 1219×863 pixels. More info here.


Poker Copilot 3.07 Now Available

Poker Copilot 3.07 is now available to download.

What’s changed:

  • Added true/false/any to each Advanced filter
  • Added UnibetPOKER support
  • Updated German language pack
  • Updated Portuguese language pack
  • Merge Poker hands were giving some spurious values for “take in big blinds” in the summary screens. This is now fixed.
  • Modified Party Poker parser to work with date and table structure in German. This is a temporary measure.
  • PokerStars tournament summary files with more than one tournament can now be handled.

This update does NOT need to update your Poker Copilot database.

Update Instructions:

  1. Download the latest version here.
  2. Open the downloaded file.
  3. Drag the Poker Copilot icon to the Applications icon. If prompted to replace an existing version, confirm that you do want to replace.

Now you are done and ready to hit the tables.

A poker player uses Poker Copilot to improve

There’s a nice forum thread on cardschat where a player uses Poker Copilot to get advice and improve his game. It almost reads like a case study in how to use Poker Copilot to improve at micro limits. I recommend reading it, especially if you are new-ish to Poker Copilot.

Although you’ll need to filter out this outlandish claim:

micro limits are almost impossible to win at, the variance created by loose players is a killer.

That’s really bad advice.

This is much better advice:

You need more A in your TAG. 14/8 is too passive. 14/12 is more like it. Also 3bet more.

“14/8” means 14% VPIP, 8% pre-flop raise.
