Shanky Poker Bot Review (Texas Hold’em)


Overview
Poker is a game of skill and not luck. A lot of people may disagree on this but statistics WILL play out in the end. Whoever makes the least mistakes will win, that’s the game of poker. There are many online sites that let’s you play poker for real money. These sites are full of people that try their hand at poker without knowing what they are doing. Whether they have poor decision making skills or have little patience, these are the type of people you can make money off of. This is where this poker bot (robot) comes in.
It is a programmable that automatically clicks and plays for you. You can load different profiles onto the bot. These profiles are customizable programs you can edit to change the way the bot behaves in a given situation. These codes often have 1,000 plus lines and take months to code from scratch.
It is not an easy thing and you will have to learn PPL (Poker Programming Language). There is a support forum as well. People will help you get started and answer any questions that you have. You can have the bot play out of the box, it is pre-programmed, however, you probably will not win much money the way it is. It will do ok at 2NL (1 cent, 2 cent blinds, $2 max buy-in) tables, but anything beyond that you will lose money. This bot supports wide range of sites including Full-Tilt, Bodog, Ultimate Bet, Cake, Carbon, William Hill, and a few more.

Pros
The Shanky Poker Bot is hands down the best poker bot available on the net today. It is highly customizable and pretty much any given situation can be coded. The support forum is AWESOME. You will get all the help you need there. It can play any type of game including full ring, 6max, tournament, sng’s, and double or nothing tournaments. There is high income potential, some have made a regular income with this.

Cons
Online poker has seen better days, for US players, there are not that many places you can play. It is always a risk as well, you have a high chance of being banned. Currently, Full-Tilt, Carbon, and Bodog are banning botters. Ultimate Bet no longer supports US players, this leaves Cake network. Out of the box, you will not make much money, you could even lose money. You can buy profiles that are already coded. This has gotten a lot better and 5NL is now safe to buy. There is also a steep learning curve and high start up cost. You need about $500 to effectively set up everything correctly (this includes the license, a good profile, and a good bankroll).
Poker is always a risk when playing short-term because of variance. Players are getting better and better as poker becomes more and more popular. It is hard to code a bot that can act unpredictably.

Final Thoughts
I have been part of the botting community for a good year and a half and spent a lot of time playing and coding my own profile and was a big part of that community. I have personally made $5,000+ from botting and selling profiles to other users. While it is a good hobby, it is not so great to rely on for income. I have been banned from Bodog and Full-Tilt.
There has been good times and some frustrating times. If you are into poker and live in Europe, it is worth checking out. Out of the bots out there, this one is definitely the best. Definitely recommend you give it a try or at least check out the forums. You can contact me personally for more information and I can also tell you some of the best profiles out there on the market.

This video was created by me and the money won shown here was played with my Stealth profile, which is being sold for $29 right now. First three copies were sold at $289 each.
