    It apparently works considerably more quickly and efficiently than Access, especially for large databases. (I'm talking about PT2 - still don't have PT3). I converted with a somewhat smaller database than 185k hands, and it has always worked fine.

    You can also run it on a server and take much of the load of updating the database off the machine you play on.

    My PC doesn't have Postgres sql, and being a retard I can't figure out how to download it off the website.

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance

    When i downloaded PT3 i chose to automatically download Postgres SQL .

    Even though i never used it before and still TBH have no idea how it works now .. it still works fine ..

    Ive only downloaded the ipoker hands for the Postgre SQL database ... maybe half a million hands ( still not hit a set in those hands ) ... ok maybe a few . .and ive not had any problems so far .
    There is a big misunderstanding between the concept of talent and skill, talent you have naturally but skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft... nobody got to where they were without hard work.

    I'm still on PT2 - requires a manual download of postgres and I'm clearly not nearly IT savvy enough to work it out

    The second post tells you what you need to know for a local setup (it's in response to a PT3 issue, so you can ignore the part about uninstalling PGSQL at the beginning and just start from the part about downloading it).
