The Dogwatch handgrabber was a datamining tool for Bodog Poker – it is no longer available.
Read a review of Idleminer’s working Bodog Hand Grabber
The Dogwatch handgrabber was able to datamine on Bodog Poker and save the hand histories either in Party Poker format or a special “Bodog hand history” format that was created by Dogwatch.
When Dogwatch was first released it was plagued by problems, and many paying customers were having trouble datamining with it. Many of these problems were fixed in updates, however, it is generally accepted that Dogwatch was released for sale too early.
When Bodog updated their poker client to version 184.108.40.206 the Dogwatch handgrabber could no longer read the tables due to the changes, and as a result it was unable to save any hand histories.
The developers of Dogwatch claimed that they were working on an update that would work with version 220.127.116.11, however, sales of Dogwatch were later discontinued, and their website (http://dogwatch.freehostia.com/) has since then been shut down.
This means that the Dogwatch handgrabber most likely won’t be seeing the light of day again.
This article isn’t meant as a critique of the Dogwatch handgrabber or the developers who made it. It is mearly an accounting of events.
If you want to datamine Bodog, I suggest that you use Idleminer’s Bodog Hand Grabber.
