Poker Copilot and America’s Cardroom

America’s Cardroom released their Mac client earlier this month. It is one of the few poker rooms accepting US players.

We’re working hard to add support for it to Poker Copilot. Today we got our first America’s Cardroom hands imported into Poker Copilot. There’s still a ways to go, but we hope to have basic America’s Cardroom support in the next Poker Copilot update.



Winamax 8-max tables and Poker Copilot HUD

Winamax has moved all their full-ring scheduled tournaments to 8-max tables. Why? I don’t know.

The current version of Poker Copilot’s HUD has problems remembering HUD panel locations for Winamax 8-max tables. We’ve got a solution ready for you already. The next update of Poker Copilot fixes the problem. If you’d like to have the fix already, you can download and install this early access update.

Please send any feedback for this update to us directly from with Poker Copilot -> Help -> Report an Issue. Or email us.

Poker Copilot Crashing Today (2015-10-18) in Brazil

Today is the day Brazilians change their clocks for daylight saving time. A recent Poker Copilot change doesn’t handle this properly, so today our customers in Brazil are finding that Poker Copilot crashes at startup.

We’ve fixed this, and the fix will be in the next update. If you want the fix already so you can keep playing poker today, 18th October, 2015, you can download this fixed version of Poker Copilot.

Poker Copilot 5.34 is now available

Poker Copilot 5.34 is now available to download. This update has many small fixes and improvements. The most important changes are:

  • You can record multiple hands (eg an entire tournament) into a single video for sharing with your poker coach or friends.
  • Winamax: preferred seat setting now detected for 7-max final tables.
  • Winamax: preferred seat setting now detected for 4-max tables.
  • Added support for PartyPoker France.
  • Fixes for detecting tournament tables.




Record an entire tournament as a video

Coming in the next Poker Copilot is a feature that has long been on our list of requested features: record multiple hands into one video. Typically this is so you can record a whole tournament to share with your poker coach.

It required us to change the way we created the videos – the approach we were using was fine for a single hand, but wasn’t going to work for a large group of hands.

Here’s how it works:

  1. view a table of hands in Poker Copilot. For example, “Recent Hands”, or drill down into a “Recent Tournament”
  2. in the table, select the hands you want to record. Hold down the shift key while selecting hands so that you can select multiple hands. Or press Cmd+A to select ALL the hands in the table.
  3. Right-click anywhere in the selection. A drop-down menu appears. Select “Record Selected Hands to Video”
  4. Choose a name for the video, click “Start”, wait a moment

Now you have a video! You can open it in QuickTime or with another video player, such as VLC. You can upload it to YouTube.

Here’s a video showing it in action.


Poker Copilot suddenly stopped recognising PokerStars: how to solve

In recent days, some Poker Copilot customers have suddenly found that PokerStars is no longer recognised by Poker Copilot. The problem is that PokerStars has updated, and strangely, renamed itself as “PokerStars 2” or “PokerStars 3”.

This is also affecting country-specific versions such as PokerStarsDE, PokerStarsIT, PokerStarsFR, and PokerStarsBE. It has suddenly renamed itself to, for example, PokerStarsDE 2, or PokerStarsFR 2.

The solution is simple: go to your Applications folder and rename the application to its original name. So, rename “PokerStars 2” to “PokerStars”. Make sure to delete both the space character and the number 2.

Then restart Poker Copilot, and you’ll find that it now detects PokerStars again.

The next Poker Copilot update will attempt to recognise “PokerStars 2” or “PokerStars 3” as PokerStars.
