Players who enjoy the online poker action at PKR will likely tell you that the most notable difference between PKR's software and that of its competition is the amazing 3D play. PKR does an excellent job of incorporating the feel of actual poker and has visual aspects that are unrivaled by other online poker sites.
However, one of the drawbacks is that multi-tabling is not quite as smooth on this site as it is on others. Thankfully, Two Plus Two forum member "Thois," who is listed on the popular poker forum as "Adept," has created a new script that will allow players to manually cycle through four tables by using the mouse wheel.
Using the script can result in a significant amount of time saved, not to mention that it is free to use.
With the PKR software, players can participate at as many as four tables at one time. Although this doesn't favorably compare with larger sites, it allows for a good amount of multi-tabling action considering how much effort PKR put into its graphics engine. Auto Hot Key scripts (AHK) have become increasingly popular over the last five years due to the fact that so many players are multi-tabling.
There are applications out there that allow competitors to bet with keyboard strokes, mouse clicks, and even XBOX controllers, all for the sake of making online poker more enjoyable. With this new AHK script, all you have to do is simply rotate the wheel of your mouse in order to change the current table when playing on PKR. This provides an advantage over those who are not using the script, who must manually move their cursor and click on the corresponding area in order to change tables.
If you would like to use this AHK script for PKR, but are playing at fewer than four tables, you will need to do some minor editing to the actual script, but this is explained in a Two Plus Two thread by member "Thois." There was an additional post within the thread requesting the creation of a script that allows a player to toggle his time bank on and off using the mouse wheel or similar hotkey, so we will also keep an eye on that as well to see if more customizable scripts are published in the upcoming weeks.
In order to make use of this tool, you will first need to download AHK and choose either the Windows Installer or the zip file format. Then, you will need to paste the text published within the Two Plus Two thread into NotePad and rename "pkr.txt" to "pkr.AHK". Then, you're done.
Becoming proficient in programming has turned quite a few online poker pros into major players in the software business as techniques are improved and more online needs arise thanks to the use of mobile devices. iPhone and Android apps have exploded onto the market in recent years and could continue to dominate a large segment of the poker software market if more players enter the game using a handheld device that doubles as a cellular phone.
