Hey guys i did study programming maybee a decade ago but then after a few years i had to quit and focus on other things and since then i did not program anymore. But now times have changed and i have time again and was thinking about to make a own small project that could also be useful for me, to learn how to program again.
I am a poker pro and play on sites where i only can get my handhistories manually. For example i play a hand, the site saves it, i have to click on hand history and then “send to my e mail” and only then i can use it after i got my mail. If you play like thousand hands on multiple tables you can maybee imagine how painful this process is. I want to use this hand histories for studying purposes, but like this this is very difficult.
I was thinking about a “screenshotgrabber” that makes every second or so a screenshot and collects all the info and writes all the needed info down in a text file.
It will look like this in the end:

And of course this is completly legal before anybody comes and asks this question, because it isn’t a advisor program or so.
Idk if this is too ambitious or even possible for a beginner. But in my mind it isn’t that complicated but we will see.
Let me know what you think.
