How to capture hand histories from Ignition browser play
Greetings. I am an online player at Ignition (limited to US-friendly poker rooms unfortunately), and because I use a Linux operating system I am limited to playing in browser-based poker rooms. Currently I am playing on Ignition due to their anonymous tables, and technically they don't allow HUDs, which is fine because no poker HUDs are compatible with Linux, as far as I know.
However, I would still like to be able to download/analyze my hand histories to discover leaks. I see that Ignition tracks my hand histories online, but there doesn't seem to be any way to download or save them. Even after contacting them, they basically said it's only possible on the poker client software, and even then they're trying to "phase out" the software client. One Ignition "chat helper" made it seem like I could in fact save the online hand histories, but then wasn't able to explain how, so who knows.
Anyway, I know sites like pokerhandreplays.com can take text input and recreate a hand for you, but of course the Ignition site puts the online hand history into some weird-ass format that I'm not sure any hand conversion site will be able to parse (picture attached below). I wanted to know if there is any site that can convert Ignition online hand histories into a readable format I can download, or barring that, if there is anyway to capture the hand histories straight from the Ignition site onto my computer. I'm already at a disadvantage playing without a HUD, and if I cannot capture my hand histories to identify and fix my leaks, playing at Ignition's online poker room is essentially useless for me, and I should withdraw my money as soon as I am able.
re: Poker & How to capture hand histories from Ignition browser play
I've tried running several poker rooms, Hand2Note, and Holdem Indicator in Wine, but none of them work; maybe my install of Wine is bad? The only thing that successfully runs in Wine for me is Equilab. Anyways, I could try to install Windows on a virtual machine and see if that is any more effective.
Has anyone here been able to successfully run Ignition or BetOnline poker software clients through Wine or any other emulator?
