The Poker Copilot team is in Barcelona, Spain and not in New Jersey, USA. This restricts our ability to test today’s update properly. So if you are in New Jersey, we’d love to hear your feedback. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any problems.
Stealing the blinds is an extremely profitable technique for online poker. If you haven’t mastered blind stealing, you are leaving plenty of easy money on the table.
I explain blind stealing in our blind stealing guide, and offer you some strategies I’ve developed by investigating an database of 2 million poker hands from a range of player types.
I’ve done some calculations over a very large database of hands, and discovered that:
In tournaments, 53% of the time, the big blind folds to a steal attempt. In ring games, 62% of the time, the big blind folds to a steal attempt. Think that through: more than half the time, a blind steal attempt will give you the blinds without any further play. This suggests that you should make blind steal attempts with a large range of hands.
But it gets even better, as I explain in the section below on playing the flop. Keep reading.
America’s Cardroom (ACR) on Mac released an update yesterday, March 9th, 2016. Unfortunately the ACR update introduced some problems with their hand history files. Where the hand date, hand id, and table info should be, there are just some placeholders:
Game started at: 
Game ID:    ()
Game started at: 2015/7/1 9:21:48
Game ID: 438718977 10/20 $10 Jackpot Poker, Table 1 (Hold'em)
This makes it impossible for Poker Copilot to track the tables. We’ve reported this to ACR. In our experience the ACR team are very responsive, so we expect a fix will be available soon.

Some poker rooms, such as America’s Cardroom, don’t make tournament results available to Poker Copilot. Many of our customers manually enter tournament results, by right-clicking on a recent tournament and selecting “Get Info”.
However if you need to reset your Poker Copilot database, these manual changes are lost. This has been a pain point for a while. As of the next Poker Copilot update, this pain will be gone.
From Poker Copilot’s menu, select Tools -> Restore Manual Tournament Changes. You’ll be prompted to continue. Select OK and in a split second all your manual changes will be reapplied.
