New Holdem Bot Profile Results

We love hearing about how our members are doing with our Holdem Bot software, and we're always getting feedback. Lately, there have been some interesting reports in our support forum regarding the different profiles that are available for use in the bot.

The default profile that comes in the bot is called "the Doodle," and we are now on version 104. That means it's been improved 104 times. It's playing such solid poker these days that no one has been able to find even one questionable play to show us with suggestions for improvements. Here's what one of our long-time customers recently said about it in the forum:

"I'm using the new custom time delay feature to delay some of the actions in Doodle 104 (usually with strong hands) and I've been booking winning sessions every night this week."

Of course, there are many alternative profiles available in the forum as well. One that's been getting a lot of attention lately is a fixed-limit profile called "Tensor." Take a look at this graph of results just posted by someone who is using it in micro-stakes .02/.04 cent games, and is up over $60 so far:

Tournaments are an extremely popular target for our bot. There's a free MTT version of Doodle 104 that's been killing it lately. Here are two comments recently posted about it: 

"With the DoodleMTT I have played around thirty 27-man and larger field Guaranteed tournaments. I've made the final table or outright won 12 of them.  This profile is good!"

"I ran eight 45-man MTT's yesterday with the most current version of DoodleMTT and I was shocked. The profile made 6 final tables and bubbled once as well!  DoodleMTT took two 2nds, one 3rd,   two 4ths, and one 5th place!"

And of course there are plenty of alternative tournament profiles available as well. Here's a graph recently posted by someone using the "WebMTT" profile at small stakes 1-table SNG's: 

They're up over $300 so far, and you just have to love the slope and direction of that chart line.

We currently support about a dozen iPoker rooms (including EU, France, and Italy rooms), 888 Poker (including the Spanish room), four Winning Poker Network rooms (USA citizens allowed in all 50 states), Bodog, Bovada, Cake, and Intertops Poker. You can download the latest version of the bot that comes with Doodle 104 here:

That's it for now. If you need a license, there's a link to buy one on the bot itself (or you can reply to this email and ask for direct payment instructions). Have fun at the tables and we'll see you or your bot at the cashier window.

New PPL Variable: Opponent Current Stack Size Now Available

We just released version 7.9.0 of the Poker Bot which incorporates a new numeric-valued PPL variable:

MaxCurrentOpponentStackSizeThe number of big blinds that the live opponent (who is still in the hand and not yet folded) with the largest current stack has in his stack at the moment when it is the bot’s turn to act. Can be used on the left of the % comparators to compare to your own stack size and is useful for identifying short-stacked opponents or determining that all the live opponents have your stack covered. Can be used preflop or post-flop.

It works at all supported poker rooms. The new PPL Guide (dated Sept 14) includes examples for using it in sections 3.2.1, 3.5.7, and  3.5.8.

This has been an often-requested feature in the past. So, you can now know your effective stack size – that is, whether your live opponent(s) has a short stack or has you covered at any point during the hand. Many of us are scrambling to update our tournament profiles to push with any two cards against extremely short stacks, and our cash game profiles to draw more liberally for small bets against large stacks.

Meanwhile, one of our members recently tested the default “Doodle” profile for 73,000 hands at NL2 cash games. It’s been awhile since someone posted results on this particular basic test. Here is his graph:

The default Doodle profile is now on version 108 and, as you can see, is playing better than ever. You can safely use it in full ring cash games up to NL10 (and maybe one step higher) especially to grind rakeback and clear deposit bonuses. But of course, if you prefer a more aggressive profile for 6-max cash games we have plenty of those available as well and we recommend you check out the 6pack profile or Wild Bill.
You can download Poker Bot version 7.9.0 right now, here:
…and start updating your own personal profile to include instructions based on your live opponent’s current stack size.
That’s it for now. If you need a license, there’s a link for buying one on the bot menu itself, or you can reply to this email for instructions on making a direct Paypal, Bitcoin, or Skrill transfer. Have fun manipulating your opponents based on their stack size and we’ll see you or your bot at the final table soon.
