Remember the tournament list from Macropoker.com?

Some of you may remember MacroPoker.com. Or if you're older still, PokerTournamentMonitor.com. Both sites are now defunct, but what they did was provide an updated list of poker tournaments sourced from a variety of different poker sites.

These lists of tournaments were accurate, generated in real time (or close to it), listed all the pertinent details about a tournament (buy-in, start time, etc), and were searchable.

These sites provided a great resource for tournament grinders, at least in my opinion.

Question is, how would one go about programming something like this? Tracking the tournament output from various sites, putting them into manageable and searchable displays, automating the whole process, etc?

Re: Remember the tournament list from Macropoker.com?

Easy enough:

a) (the hard part) have the guts of TableScanTurbo or any seating script type software. DLL injection, memory probing, OCR even or whatever method, some ability to read the table listing from a running client. Have for as many sites as possible / desired. Difficulty is highly variable depending on what site you're trying to read.

b) put that information in a database.

c) make nice website / interface to browse / search / filter results from said database.

_dave_,

Thanks for the answer. I can safely say that what you have advised is outside of the realm of my ability.

Do you have any advice on where I might be able to find someone capable of pulling that off?
