Algorithm of uploading the hand histories to Hypertracker

Last update: 31.05.2020

Pokerstars

The hand history (HH) can be uploaded from txt files or in the zip / rar archive.

We process the following situations:

1. Txt files with any name, if they are uploaded as separate files, not an archive. The tournament summaries (TS) can be uploaded as well. Other file types will be ignored.

If you try to upload only the TS file without HH, an error will appear.

2. Archive, in which there is one long file with the HH. Usually this is a HH received in the archive from pokerstars. The file name has one of the patterns:

Hands.txt (Hands.txt)

handHistory- \ d + .txt (handHistory-19556.txt)

If you unpack such an archive, it will be uploaded as well.

3. Archive, which contains many files with the HH or HH + TS together. When we parse such an archive we expect to see files with the following patterns in the names:

If the file name contains the text 'НН12345', where (12345 is the tournament number) then this is the XX file for a separate tournament.

If the name of the file contains the text 'TS12345' (where 12345 is the tournament number) then this is the TS file for a single tournament.

If there are HH and TS files with different names in such an archive, they will be ignored during parsing. Error messages will not appear.

If the HH does not have a pair of TS, this is not a problem, HH will pass without it. The TS file without a pair of HH won't be uploaded.

4. If there are files in the archive with the pattern name tournament_number.txt, such files will be uploaded. Other types of files in such archive will be ignored.

You can’t upload the HH and TS from different rooms at the same time.

Winamax

Winamax files can be uploaded only in the zip / rar archive. If HH does not have a pair of TS, it will still be uploaded, but without NetWon information.

Files inside the archive are processed according to the following rule:

  • If the file name contains the word 'Expresso' or the word 'Deglingos' + there is no word 'summary' and + there is no word TS {num}, then this is an XX file
  • If the file name contains the word 'Expresso' or the word 'Deglingos' + there is also the word 'summary' or the word TS {num}, then this is a TS file
