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.
