PLO Poker Bots for UPoker and PPpoker

Our Omaha-Hi PLO poker bot now supports PPpoker and UPoker for PLO4 tables. The bot comes with several good profiles including an MTT profile which manages its stack well in tournaments. But the real action in this game on these app platforms is on cash tables, and for those we recommend the “headsupcash” profile that comes in the bot, as it plays a looser and more aggressive short-handed game. Use this profile for any cash table, even a full 9-max table should you find yourself at one. Although the profile is somewhat loose-aggressive, it is still far tighter than 90% of your opponents who are raising and playing every hand at most of these clubs, even garbage like K843 with the 8 suited. This is why you will beat them.

A word of warning here: We also sell an Omaha Hi-Lo bot for the poker sites we support (iPoker, Ignition / Bovada, etc.) and recommend you not download it if you are just wanting the Omaha-Hi PLO bot for the apps UPoker & PPpoker. The reason being that we have had some customers get confused and actually load the Hi-Lo profiles into the PLO bot, which, of course, results in disaster. The apps don’t offer Omaha Hi-Lo, so there is no reason to download the bot if you are only playing UPoker or PPpoker and only potential downside from it. Just download the Omaha-Hi bot.

The next issue to address is that of PLO5 and PLO6.  Our Omaha Bot can only currently play PLO4. We understand that there is tremendous action at these new game types, so we are thinking about how to add support for them. It may be a simple matter of adding the higher “straight draw out” possibilities into the bot after training it to see all the hole cards. Then, of course, we need to tweak the profiles to optimally play huge straight draw wraps and figure out what to do with middle set when two opponents are raising and squeezing us all-in on a board of JT5 with two suits we don’t own. But we will work all that out in the near future.

For now, please enjoy PLO4 with our Omaha-Hi bot. The action in many clubs is currently good at these tables as well. You can download our latest Omaha bots right now, here:

We are now keeping up support of our Omaha Bots along with our Holdem Bots, so that every time we post a Holdem Bot update we also post a corresponding Omaha Bot update that includes the same patches. You can follow the update announcements along with the change logs on our forum thread at:,12.440.html

Online Gaming During and After COVID-19

Our business saw a significant pick-up during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. A whole lot of people who enjoy poker found themselves at home and online, with nothing to do. That is a formula for an online business boom. Just ask Amazon. With the casinos and poker rooms shut down, online poker tables quickly filled up.

Poker isn’t the only form of online gaming that is seeing a surge. A friend of ours runs an online casino referral site at and also reports that business is good. Yep, good old fashion casino gambling. The Las Vegas Strip is deader than a doornail right now, so maybe this is where everyone went.

The question is, will this trend continue or will it taper off as the pandemic eases and the world economies return to normal? It is a difficult question to answer because we don’t really know if normal is a thing that will ever again match pre-pandemic conditions. There is a lot of talk of a new normal. Many companies learned that most jobs can actually be performed from home. And some of those unmonitored employees like to mix in a little online recreation in their work day. Heck, why not?

Therefore it is our prediction that the COVID-19 crisis will have lasting positive effects on the world of online gaming. We think poker action will stay good for years into the foreseeable future. It is a good time to own an online casino or poker club (especially since you can now open a poker club on an app platform like PPpoker, UPoker, and Poker Bros). It is also a good time to be a strong online poker player who is working a +EV strategy.

With this in mind, we here at Shanky aim to maintain good support for our poker bot software. And we think these aforementioned apps may represent the future of online poker. They are unquestionably where the softest action can be found. You just need reputable clubs and agents. We are working on recruiting those into our forum as well. If you have not been active lately, it’s time to make a deposit and find your game – and while you are at it, update your poker bot.

Our Bots as Internal House Poker Bots for Poker Site Owners

If you own your own poker site software and are looking to implement house bots for Holdem and/or Omaha, we have great news: you can now incorporate the best online poker bot ever developed (and sold continuously for 14 years) into your poker room.

Bots are important when launching and building a poker site for action and liquidity purposes. Your players deserve action. Bots can make sure they always get it. Our poker bots come with a variety of playing styles, so you can configure the personality of an entire table if you like. Some of our profiles play very solid. Others can play wild and create a fun table atmosphere.

We have turned away a lot of private support job requests recently because we didn’t have the time, and also because the logistics of poker site owners having to create a hardware network in order to use our product (the way our retail customers do) was an undesirable aspect. But we have now developed a way for our poker bot technology to function internally with your online poker site software.

Here’s how it works. You will need the ability to create a JSON which will provide the current table state for your bot player to react to. We will provide a DLL which will interact with the info from your JSON and provide the action to take based on which playing profile you assign our DLL to use. You can put as many as you want on the same table on as many tables as you like. You will then simply cause the returned action from our DLL to be taken for that player (a simple task for your programmer).

Our developer with work with yours to get it working for your site — which won’t take long, because we have already created the DLL (and other sites are in fact already running it). The DLL is licensed and will work for one year before needing to be renewed. Maybe by then you’ll have enough traffic not to need to renew it.

Price for the setup and first year is $7500 for Holdem or $12000 for both Holdem and Omaha (includes both Omaha-Hi and Omaha Hi-Lo).

Annual renewals are $5000 for Holdem or $8000 for Holdem and Omaha, if desired.

Custom profile packages are available as well. Contact us if interested.

Summer 2020 Poker Bot Updates

Do you know it’s been 14 years since we first started selling poker bots? And we are still here as the best online poker bot creator and providers. There is a reason for that.

We are happy to announce that Holdem Bot 10.3.8 has been posted, and is available for download right now at:

This the 12th update we have cranked out this month, catching up fixes for software updates across all our supported platforms. The bot is now in tiptop shape, as is reflected in this recent customer feedback:

“I am $400 up from a $25 deposit in about 2 weeks”

“I’m running 3 tables with no issues.  I tried 5 MTT’s with the standard MTT profile, runs well and cashed 4 out of 5 including a  2nd place. Was considering getting KGB, but this one is doing great.”

“The software is fantastic … already made a couple of final tables!”

Omaha fans please note we have now caught the Omaha Bot up in all recent fixes as well.

PPpoker fans please note the new version of the bot is multi-tabling the new PPpoker 35 with all tables on the screen at the same time, and because those table sizes are small there is complete separation of tables bringing excellent performance (PPpoker setup can be tricky the first time so make sure you watch our video or have Egor come on by Teamviewer and set it up for you). I just got off a Teamviewer session helping someone set the bot up for 3-tabling at ACR on a small laptop, and during my short tutorial all three tables booked a profit at NL10 6-max cash tables using the 6-pack profile.

Here is a new screenshot of a nice tournament score just sent to us this month by someone who use the bot in a rebuy tourney and only made two buy-ins (a good approach to these):

Current Site Support:

Ignition, Bodog, & Bovada are fully supported and all working great.

The WPN Network (Americas Cardroom, Poker King, Black Chip, True Poker) are now fully re-supported again for cash games, tourneys, and Blitz Poker on their latest software platform.

iPoker support: Most iPoker sites in most countries are now re-supported for their recent software changes. And that’s a lot of sites!

PPpoker is fully-supported for 6-max and 9-max tables and now can multi-table with only one account. There are a few tricks required to use the bot here, so be sure to read the updated Easy Start Guide! (We also have a video now posted to guide your through the setup.)

France: The bot currently works at in both the French and English language, but should also work on any other iPoker site there now

Italy:,,, and all now work in both the Italian and English languages, plus the bot should work at all other iPoker sites here now.

Spain:, and are now all working in Spain, plus the bot should work at all other iPoker sites here now.

BetOnline and are both still supported, but new extra stealth measures are required as they are scanning folders on your PC looking for our bot. Our latest PDF instructions show you the easy tricks required for not getting flagged (and if you do they only send you a polite warning email).

That’s it for now. If you need a license, there’s a link on the bot menu for purchasing one, or else feel free to reply to this email if you need special purchasing instructions for Bitcoin, Skrill, or Western Union (which you can quickly send with a credit card online now). Have fun at the tables and we’ll see you or your bot at the final table soon.

Poker Bot Private Support Work (bots for your site)

To answer a common inquiry, we do take on private support work for poker site owners on occasion. What we do is make our existing product work at your site. It is not an internal back-end kind of thing. So you will need multiple PC’s and/or VMs in order to run the bots. Each bot instance plays one PC/VM up to 6 tables. Our private support jobs include an unlimited number of licenses.

Contract Details

The first thing we need is access to an account with funds in it to simply determine whether or not the support work can even be done. Keep in mind our software is Windows-only and we have not yet done any work using mobile OS emulators. We prefer a downloadable poker client for Windows as opposed to something web/flash based.

If we decide to take the job, the price is $18,000 USD payable in three installments of $6,000. The first installment is to be paid before we do any actual programming work.

We will produce a working product before the second installment is due, and issue a handful of licenses for testing. After we identify the bugs and refinements still needed, the second installment is to be paid. We will dole out more licenses as needed during this phase as multiple new versions are tested.

The third installment is payable after all the bugs are fixed and the product is working satisfactory. Please note that subsequent software updates which affect the bot constitute additional work which is not part of the initial support job contract – but those can usually be completed quickly, and we won’t charge much for maintaining support as long as the needed fixes remain minor.

The typical job is completed in 2-3 months time. If you are still interested in a private support job please contact us.
