5 New Holdem Bot Profiles

Hey poker-botters, how do 5 new Holdem cash game profiles sound? We got them, they are now posted, and they are all free. The first thing you want to do, of course, is make sure you have the latest Holdem Bot version, which you can download here:


Next, come get the new profiles in our forum. These started off as a special project for one of our corporate clients who wanted different playing styles to populate tables with. We’ve gone ahead and tweaked them further, to make them all better cash game players while maintaining style individuality. The new profiles are all named Tom. We have:

Tight Tom: For those of you who prefer tight, solid play.

Timid Tom: Not quite as tight, but holds back on the aggression.

Trapper Tom: Looks to break those aggressive bluffers by check-calling them to the river with strong hands.

Tricky Tom: Always mixing things up and somewhat afflicted by “fancy play syndrome.”

Tyrant Tom: Just a serious table bully, but knows when to back down too (well, sometimes).

It is our desire to keep refining these, so we invite you to the new thread in our forum (where they are linked from) and would love to see you post hands from your logs with suggestions for improvements. You’ll need to log into the forum to access. Here is the URL:


Current Site & Platform Support:
Ignition, Bodog, & Bovada are fully supported and all working great.

iPoker support: Most iPoker sites in most countries are currently working great. 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. The setup is easy here now, but be sure to read it in our PDF instructions.

UPoker is now fully supported and has the easiest setup of any of our platforms. The bot pretty much just works here as long as you have 100% Display setting, English UPoker language, and the 2-color deck (however multi-tabling is not supported here).
France: The bot currently works at Betclic.fr in both the French and English language, but should also work on any other iPoker site there now including Netbet

Italy: Snai.it, Titanbet.it, Bet365.it, and Betfair.it all now work in both the Italian and English languages, plus the bot should work at all other iPoker sites here now.

Spain: Bet365.es, and Betfair.es are now all working in Spain, plus the bot should work at all other iPoker sites here now.

The WPN Network (Americas Cardroom, Poker King, Black Chip, True Poker) are currently supported for cash games, tourneys, and Blitz Poker on their latest software platform. Be aware, however, that extra stealth measures are now advised as they have recently started harassing and banning some botters. Our latest PDF instructions show you the easy steps required for not getting flagged.

BetOnline and Sportsbetting.ag are both still supported, but 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. Enjoy the action and we’ll see you or your bot at the final table soon.

Yes we have UPoker Poker Bots

We now have fully working poker bots for UPoker for both NLH and PLO4. The latest update of our poker bot software to version 10.8.1 re-supports UPoker at 6-Max, 8-max, and 9-Max tables for both Windows 7 and Windows 10. It has been tested in all different environments and the bugs are now weeded out. It’s time to bot UPoker!

Download Holdem Bot 10.8.1 with UPoker support at: https://shankydownload.com/hedownload.htm

Download PLO4 Omaha Bots version 10.8.1 with UPoker support at: https://shankydownload.com/omdownload.htm

Setup for UPoker is extremely easy: English language, 2-color deck, and make sure your Windows Display DPI (Display setting) is on 100%. That’s it. The bot will resize the window correctly to where it needs it.

Our best cash profile is now set to auto-load in our PLO4 Omaha-Hi bot so all you have to do is open it and press start. If you are playing at any fishy UPoker clubs, give it a whirl!

Multi-tabling can only be done if you can make the additional tables appear on the screen at the same time. We hear this might be possible to do using different accounts, like back in before PPpoker allowed simultaneous multi-tabling. See the multi-tabling instructions in the back of our Easy Start Guide PDF instructions for opening additional bot windows to attach to additional tables.

Poker Bots for Red Star Poker

Our Holdem Bot and both our Omaha Bots (PLO and Omaha Hi-Lo) now work on  Red Star Poker. Red Star recently moved to the iPoker network, which means the bots should have automatically worked there, but this site has slightly different-looking betting buttons so we had to program support for it individually.

That work is now done and our Russian customers are reporting good functionality and good results. You can download version 10.5.9 of our bots right now at:

Holdem Bot Download Page: https://shankydownload.com/hedownload.htm

Omaha Bots Download Page: https://shankydownload.com/omdownload.htm

All three bots come with a 200-hand free demo.

The usual iPoker setup instructions apply, which in a nutshell are: Windows language set to English/US, poker client language set to English, green table felt, 2-color deck, “Auto Center My Seat” on the table tab is set, stack sizes display in currency (not number of big blinds), betting buttons set for Pot and Max, Ads on table for casino games collapsed, and Windows Display DPI set to 100%.

PPpoker is also working great for our bot right now if you get the setup dialed in correctly. It can be tricky here, especially if English is not your strong language, so we have been helping some of our customers set it up by Teamviewer. Once it is done it is a beautiful thing and the bot can 5-table there as efficiently as it can 2-table if your system specs are decent, even on laptop screens.

We are working on fixing UPoker for their software change and so far have 6-max tables working for Windows 7. We hope to have the rest of the support work done within the week.

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 Red Star and we’ll see you or your bot at the final table soon.

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:

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 www.onlinecasinos.net 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.
