It's easier than re-buying live!


2. Felix 'xflixx' Schneiders--Bet Slider Shortcut Buttons

"I set up my bet slider buttons to bet sizes I use a lot. Even if I want to deviate a little, using those buttons lets me get roughly where I want to be so setting up my final bet amount goes a little quicker. "

How-to: 'Options' > 'Bet Slider Options'


3. Randy 'nanonoko' Lew--Single-click Table Activation

"If I'm playing more than one table, this lets me click the action buttons on one table and immediately click the action buttons on the next table without that window needing focus. If you've experienced what feels like needing to double click a button to take an action, this will fix it. "

How-to: 'Options' > 'Advanced Multi-Table Options' > 'Single click table activation'


4. Tyler 'frosty012' Frost--Hotkey Settings

"Hotkeys make it easy to setup your keyboard and play from it. For example, you can use F1 for fold, F2 for check/call, and F3 for bet/raise. "
