For those of you who love to data mine, there’s some good news regarding the games at Full Tilt PokerPoker Hand Scout recently gave us word that it has brought back support for the world’s second largest online poker site, something that hasn’t been available in months.

A representative of Poker Hand Scout told, “I am pleased to announce that Poker Hand Scout is compatible with the latest Full Tilt update again,” which lets us know that you can head back to the site if you are in need of hands at the USA-friendly room.  When the site updated its software a few months ago, hand grabbing from it became nearly impossible.

According to Poker Hand Scout’s statistics page, it has been able to mine hands since December 28th, when it brought in over 45,000 hands from the 100nl six-max games alone.  Prior to that, there is no data available, but hands have come in steadily every day since.  Over the last week, the data mining site has steadily averaged around 38,000 hands at the 100nl six-max level.

Poker Hand Scout captures No Limit Hold’em and Limit Hold’em hands as well as hands from Pot Limit Omaha tables.  The starting stake is $0.10-$0.25 and goes all the way up to the $50-$100 nosebleed-stakes games.  You can also specify whether to get heads-up, six-max, or full ring hands when making an order.

One of the unique features of Poker Hand Scout is its Poker Hand Client Version 1.01 that can download and extract hand histories for you if you sign up for daily deliveries.  With two simple mouse clicks, the program will grab and unzip hand histories to your hard drive so that they can be imported by your favorite hand history tracking utility such as Holdem Manager and PokerTracker.

Poker Hand Client is offered for free from Poker Hand Scout and is fully automated and easy to use.  Customers are not required to use it, but can as a matter of convenience.  The more traditional method of purchasing hand histories is to go to the site and click on “Purchase” from the top menu.  Once there, you are presented with two choices, “Continue with a Bulk Purchase” or “Continue with a Retail Purchase.”

The Bulk Purchase is for those looking to buy a specific number of hand histories from the past.  Once you make the purchase and pay for it, you will receive one download link for all of the requested hand histories.

The other method is the Retail Purchase.  You can buy hand histories under this method for a period of four weeks.  You’ll get the hand histories as a daily package to your e-mail inbox or you can use the aforementioned application tool.  Each day that you get a hand history package, you’ll be data mining the previous day.  This is the best method for keeping a database completely up to date.

Poker Hand Scout’s pricing tiers are extremely affordable.  For 300,000 hands, the cost as of the time of writing is $18.  For one million hands, the cost is $55 (an 8% discount from the original rate).  If you want to buy five million hands, the cost is just $150, which represents a 50% discount.
