Holdem Bot Profile Info Page

To celebrate our new website re-design, we posted an updated information page on several popular profiles for our Holdem Bot. Check that out here:


It should be of particular interest to anyone seeking an understanding of the strategy behind Wild Bill, and the correct way to use it. When you follow the instructions, and have just a little bit of luck, the results can be a towering stack size that is almost comical – as these recent customer comments reflect:

“Came back to my PC and whoa! Bill had all the chips at the table, and the fully-tilted villains kept stacking off more.”
“Just got the bot, been fooling around at one site where Wild Bill is winning for me.”

Wild Bill is one of five profiles that now come pre-loaded in the bot. You can download the latest build, Holdem Bot version 8.9.5 right now, here:


To use the profiles package that comes in the bot, just go to Holdem > Read Profile and point and click to load. It doesn’t get easier than that!

Help with the Profiles that Come in our Holdem Bot

Our Holdem Poker Bot bot now comes loaded with 5 different profiles to choose from. Here is some information about their playing styles:

6-Pack: Load this one for 6-max cash tables. It plays a LAG-style game (loose-aggressive) without becoming hyper-aggressive. Buy in for a full stack.

Little Green: Based on the style taught in Phil Gordon’s book, this profile will push with draws and strong hands on the flop, so is best used in cash games and is good at full 9/10 player tables where the players stick around a while. Buy in for around 70% of a full stack for best results.

Wild Bill: A hyper-aggressive cash game profile that tightens up when it’s stack size reaches 150 big blinds. It is important to only buy in for a half-stack with this profile (you can also short-stack with it).

MTT: One of our favorite tournament profiles. Use in MTTs or SNGs (but be aware that 200 hands may not be enough to finish the event).

Default profile: Do nothing to use this one as it loads by default. It’s name is Doodle and it plays a typical TAG-style (tight-aggressive) so is best at low stakes, full 9 or 10-player cash tables. A good choice to simply evaluate how the bot functions if you can find a full 9/10-max table going.

While you may or may not agree with all of the decisions any of these profile make, you should note how well the bot functions in regards to reading position, bet size, number of opponents, and taking all the action on the current and previous betting rounds into consideration in it’s decisions. All within a 2.5 second time-frame.

You can fully customize the decisions the bot makes by tweaking any profile, or even create your own from scratch. See section 2 of the Holdem Bot User Manual for details on how to do this. Many additional ready-made profiles are available in our support forum.

Your demo will work for 200 hands before requiring you to buy a license. After you purchase a license, the bot will then continue to work unrestricted. See how easy it is to earn rakeback, clear deposit bonuses, and score high-money finishes in tournaments without having to be at your computer.

Go ahead and try it at any or all of the supported poker rooms, in play money or real money games, using any or all of the provided profiles. When you see how easy it is to beat the fish while you relax in the hot tub, we’re certain we’ll see you at the license purchase page — and welcome you into our botting family.

Have fun,

Online Gambing in America 2017

While the US still ignores the tremendous revenue source to be generated by licensing and regulating online gambling, most of the rest of the world moves forward in a wonderful new era of embracing new entertainment technology. Sites like betulator, which helps European sports bettors calculate their risk/reward ratio on wagers, attest to the responsibility most players exhibit in their gambling forays. Many are winners. The days of the virtual casino operators “fleecing innocent victims” are, largely, behind us.

In Asia, the continent on planet earth with the highest population, online gaming is the fastest growing industry by a wide margin. Many European countries which have decided online gambling is something to keep a tight reign on still allow it, choosing to regulate it more tightly and keep it in-country. An example is Italy, where online poker players are only allowed to play in games with other Italian residents. It isn’t exactly freedom, but at least they let the people play the games they want and don’t try to tell their citizens how to spend their own hard-earned paycheck.

So what’s wrong with the USA situation? When examined closely, we discover the issue is not so much legislation as it is fear of legislation. Contrary to a popular misnomer, there is no federal law addressing online gaming, other than a vague reference tacked on to an unrelated bill preventing banks from completing transactions to “illegal online gambling sites.” There is no law, nor has any high court judge ever dared to rule on, defining “illegal online gambling sites.”  But the vague reference was enough to scare all the major banks away, including Paypal. US citizens who wish to place on bet on their favorite football game must seek our creative ways to fund the wager.

Meanwhile, a small handful of individual states have wisely officially legalized online poker, in a format where the state gets a cut of the revenue. More states are supposedly lined up to follow, if they can ever get to the issue.

Interestingly enough, all Americans can bet to their heart’s content on horse races through several popular online portals. There are websites that sell Powerball lottery tickets online. So it seems some forms of online gambling are so traditional, so ingrained in our culture, that they are above fear of legislation.

Holdem Bot 8.2.5: Back in business at iPoker, 888, Bodog, and Yes some USA sites…

The current version of the Holdem Bot is 8.2.5. If you have a prior version, you should probably download the upgrade, here:


888 Poker finally upgraded in the UK, so the UK 888 Poker setting on this version of the bot is no longer necessary for UK players (and we would advise against activating it now).  Our list of supported sites is growing strong again, resulting in these recent unsolicited customer comments:

“I’m doing well botting cash games at Bet365 again. Thanks for getting them re-supported.”

“I entered the bot in an MTT last night.  With a field of 220, I came in 2nd, and cashed $156! The bot lost at HU with pocket KK, and was beat by the villain who had pocket 44.”

“My bot has been making frequent final table finishes in large-field MTTs lately (500-2000 players) thanks to the KGB profile.”

Speaking of the KGB profile, here is a recent graph posted in our forum showing results from it botting only free-rolls:

Starting with a bankroll of zero and letting the bot loose on free-rolls (and then $1 MTTs) is the best risk/reward ratio you’ll find in online poker. We’ve had members build 4-figure bankrolls this way in the past, without ever making a deposit. You just can’t beat that.

Current iPoker support includes: Bet365, Betfair, and Ladbrokes on the new software — and Titan in venues where they still offer the classic iPoker client.

888 Poker is now supported in the UK as well as continental Europe.

For our USA players:  the bot now supports Ignition Casino, America’s Cardroom, plus three other WPN skins (including 5 Dimes Shark Tank) in addition to Full Flush.

Bodog is now re-supported for the rest of the world as well.

We have so many good profiles to choose from in our forum these days, you’re going to be in good shape no matter which game-type you want to bot. And hey — if you see a move you aren’t thrilled with, it will take you only seconds to tweak the profile to play that situation differently in the future. Poker botting is awesome, man. If you haven’t been doing it lately, now’s the time to get involved again.

That’s it for now. If you need a license, there’s a link for buying one on the bot itself. Have fun at the tables and we’ll see you or your bot on a final table very, very soon.
