Is it possible to download the hand data from the daily MTT tournaments. You can do it on the training sessions but i didn't see how i could do the same things for the live session.

    Hi Michael,
    No, there isn't any way to download hand data from the live MTTs. Those are played on a separate server and stored in an entirely different way. In theory we could do a double conversion and do it, but very few people use the export feature even for the training part of the site and it would take a lot of time to develop the conversion from the live server hand format.

    Hi Allen,

    I did a bit more work on the topic and looked at the hand files that are generated on APT live server. With a bit of work, I copied the files by table into MS word and did a large amount of find replace and could get them to be processed by pokertracker 4. It takes about an hour per session to convert. With a few changes, it could almost go directly into PT4. I give an example hand that is generated in APT and a PT4 compatible hand below.

    I don't know if these changes make it difficult to use in the replay feature in APT. Analyzing performance vs bots may not be as valuable as performance analysis vs real persons.

    Regards,

    Michael
