Table Ninja Full Review
Table Ninja, the same company that brought you TableNinjaFT and TableNinjaPP, is a productivity tool for playing online poker at PokerStars. At its core, it's a way of automating tasks often reserved for clunky AHK scripts within one program that works on any Windows machine. There are a ton of features within the program, all of which are totally customizable. The central selling points include automatic betting based on the street of the hand, action hotkeys, and table controls.
Installing Table Ninja is a very easy task that requires downloading a .zip folder and running an .exe file. Once you install the program, there is a very short setup period that will take no more than a few minutes to get through. Once that is done, all you'll ever need to do is double click on the Table Ninja link to launch the program before you start your poker session.
Upon opening the program, there is a list of tabs: Action Hotkeys, Table Control, Pot Betting, Fixed Bets, Annoyances, Opening/Closing, Sit and Go Sensei (Beta), Setup, and General. The Action Hotkeys allow a user to set up hotkeys for action at the table. For example, instead of hitting the "Check" button at the table, you can simply assign "CTRL-C.” There is also a place to enter advanced hotkeys and control the bet sizing by the scroll wheel on your mouse. The Table Control tab allows you to set table control modes, cycling hotkeys, and frame colors. The Pot Betting tab is the one that most players will need to configure, as it is the area that will automatically size your bets on each street.
Other tabs are very straightforward and regulars at PokerStars will appreciate some of the shortcuts within the Annoyances tab. For example, if you are a mass multi-table cash game player, then you already know how difficult it can be to toggle through 24 tables to sit in and out. Table Ninja will allow you to assign a hotkey to sit you in and out on all of your tables at once. You also have automatic options that allow you to automatically click the time bank button when it appears, choose the “Never Sit Out” option, and refresh the info tab for tournaments. TableNinja even has an on screen display feature that displays your stack size in big blinds instead of actuall chip counts. Here is a look at the new On-Screen Display and Annoyances tabs:
There are many more features and options, but there are just too many to list. You will not be disappointed with Table Ninja. Here are a few screen shots:
For the sit and go grinders, the Sit and Go Sensei tab is especially useful. This tab will allow you to configure your automatic sit and go registration parameters. For example, you can register for the next 20 $6.50 45-man sit and gos simply by choosing some options from the drop down menus. You can specify if you want to play a certain number of sit and gos or for a certain period of time. Sit and Go Sensei has just about everything you can imagine for automated sit and go registration. Here is what Sit and Go Sensei looks like:
The Action Hotkeys and Pot Betting are godsends and the Table Control and Annoyances tabs all have very handy tools that you'll immediately begin appreciating once you start using them. Given that Table Ninja has a relatively low price point, this is the best efficiency/productivity add-on software that money can buy for PokerStars players. Table Ninja truly takes all of those AHK scripts that you use to accomplish different tasks and rolls them into one solid program.
TableNinja makes multitabling so much easier. It was super easy to set up and is fast and reliable. Great program.
