Configuring Winamax

Configuring Hand History Folders:

Although most of the times detection is automatic, there’s the rare need to manually add this folder.

Windows:

  • In the Winamax software, from the main lobby’s menu, select Tools -> Options

  • Then copy contents marked above. Then, go to Poker Copilot to add this location in your Poker Copilot’s hand history preferences.

  • Finally, click on the (+) button, then paste location in the file opener and click Open.

MacOS:

Given that folder set by Winamax is hidden, this process is better explained in a video:

Set preferred seat in Winamax

  • In the Winamax software, from the main lobby’s menu, select Tools -> Options
  • In the list of options, select Game -> Options
  • Set your preferred seat to Top, Right, Lower, or Left. Make sure it is not set to Any.
  • Click Save

Set preferred seat in Poker Copilot

  • On Windows: Select from the menu Tools -> Preferences
  • On OS X: Select from the menu Poker Copilot -> Preferences
  • Select the Poker Rooms panel
  • Enter your preferred seat for Winamax Poker. Note that this must be the same value you selected in Winamax.

Notes & Limitations

Bounties not detected

Currently, Winamax does not make info about bounties won in a form we can use. This means when you win bounties in tournaments for knocking out players, the bounties won’t show in your tournament results and bankroll.

“Flooop” tables not supported

Winamax doesn’t create hand history files on your computer for “Flooop” tables. Therefore we’re unable to support them.

“GoFast” tables not supported

At the moment the only fast-fold game we support is Zoom on PokerStars.

Re-entries not accounted

Winamax doesn’t provide this information. You can manually add this information by right-clicking on the tournament, then select “Get info” to edit the tournament result.

Statistics reset when the final table has a different number of seats

When the final table has a different number of seats compared to the rest of the tournament, the statistics reset because they are automatically filtered by table size. We hope to be able to add a workaround in the future.
