Now let's start talk directly about program configuration itself. There are a lot of tabs in the lobby, let's go through each separately.
How to configure bet sizing on the preflop?
The following step – postflop bets configuration:
The "Round bet to" item indicates how the bets will be rounded up.
Push if bet > % of stack – choose when to go all-in depending on the ratio of the opponent's bet size to the size of your stack.
You can set up convenient game management at the table in order to make necessary actions as fast as possible.
Every action can be implemented by clicking on a button. You can choose which keys will implement some kind of actions. At multi-tabling the hot keys will work for the table where a mouse cursor is located.
You can set up HotKeys in such a way that one key will implement several actions (max - 4) depending on which part of the screen the mouse cursor will be at while clicking on keys:
If you select all 4 zones, the button will work regardless the position of the mouse cursor:
If it is convenient for you to change the bet with the mouse wheel, then put a tick in "Mouse wheel" (Activate) and set up the bet sizing step (in BB, $ or in percentage of a pot).
The Betting hotkeys tab will allow you to set up the bet sizes on certain formulas in details:
Click on Add new panel, then on Add tag; select stats for displaying in HUD.
Click on Font and Font color buttons to set up the font.
Background – color of background. Click on Invisible to make it transparent.
Put ticks above the messages that disturb you when displaying.
«Auto accept all one-buttons dialogs» - when you activate this option, all pop-up windows, which have only one button (ok, agree, familiarized, etc.), will be closed automatically by clicking on this single button.
Buy-in – set up the buy-in by default (in BB).
Auto rebuy (cash) – set up the size of a stack and amount for auto rebuy.
Set up the table light according to the parameters. In order to activate the highlight, put the tick next to Activate.
In "Rule", select the conditions when the table will be highlighted with this color or the other.
The highlight will work with a certain size of stack, pot, time bank, etc.
You can find the rules and set a priority of the highlight on the left. For example, you should place Hero Action (your action) or TimeBank on the top in order to see them first.
Table Manager will be useful during multi-tabling.
You can either leave the default settings or select one of the following variations manually:
Put the tick next to “Table stays in active slop until end of hand” for remaining the table active (big) until you make a move.
At this tab, you can configure displaying of stacks in the blinds for cash-games or as M number for tournaments and also you can make that the color of the stack to be changed depending on its size.
In Label item you can select an inscription that will be shown next to the value of the stack.
In "BB decimals" you need to indicate how many symbols you want to see after comma (2 is put by default).
