What I'd need to do is datamine poker hand histories from various poker sites. Basically once you download the software from the poker site you are able to open 5 or more tables and observe the play. Via scraping and maybe via the actual stream the hands played can be saved in text files. 5 tables is not enough. Currently I have 360 users logged into 3 servers each running the poker software and 5 tables plus an autoit program that is doing the datamining. This is not a good solution and is very server heavy. I need to streamline the process, reduce the amount of servers and/or bypass the 5 table limit impossed by the poker software. The program also has to auto open the group of tables and close them if they drop below a certain number of players or become empty and open new tables in it's place. The program needs to be able to be set for different limits ( example - 6 max players, 9 max tabless, .25/.50, $2/$4 etc) and multiple instances of the program need to run. Each specific table type and/or limit's text file has to be saved to a specific folder and compress the text files at given intervals.
If you have any question please contact me. Thank you
Converting my current autoit to c is also an option
Please download a few poker clients to see for yourself how the process will actually work. Doing so will give you a much better idea of the project.
