We have all had those busy days when we have a bevy of tournaments going across two or more poker sites.  One of the more difficult things about a busy multi-site tournament session is managing the tables’ sizes and layouts.  Unfortunately, some poker sites automatically move your table to a different location when you get redrawn, while others automatically resize and move it when it breaks.  This usually means that you have to resize your tables manually and place them back where you want them.

Tiling tables is probably the most popular table layout for multi-table tournaments. Players who choose to tile their tables have been searching for a solution that will do so with a simple click of a button for quite some time.  Thanks to AutoHotKey (AHK), quickly resizing and tiling your tables has never been easier.  

A couple of weeks ago, the AHK gurus in the online poker forums joined forces to tackle the problem of tiling tables on multiple sites once and for all.  In just a few short days, a new script has been developed.  Although it remains nameless so far, the script is referred to as “Tiler with Auto Zoom.”

The script’s concept is very simple: if you have poker tables open on two or more sites and want to tile all of your tables, simply click your mouse wheel (or some other key if you choose) and all of your tables will be tiled simultaneously.

There is also another great feature included in the script called “Auto Zoom.”  This feature allows you to enlarge any table to a size you choose by activating the table and pressing the “Page Up” key.  You can move the table back to its original place by pressing the “Page Up” key a second time.  You can customize which keys perform the functions if you choose.

Here’s a look at the zoom function:

Here's a look at the AHK script's tiling capabilities:

Here is how you get started using the script.  

1) Get a copy of Tiler with Auto Zoom
2) Copy and paste the script into a new .ahk file
3) Edit the script so that the monitor width and height settings match your monitor’s settings
4) Define the size you want your enlarged table to be when using Auto Zoom
5) Save and close the file

Once you get everything set, which is very easy, all you have to do is double click the file you just created.  If you want to change the hotkeys from the mouse wheel and “Page Up” buttons to something different, right click the file and choose “Edit” to assign new hotkeys. 

This tool is something many poker players have been wanting for a long time.  Now, tiling tables across numerous sites is as simple as clicking a button.  The script uses virtually no resources, so you will not see any performance issues while using it.  After all, it’s free and will only make your sessions easier to manage!

As always, if you have questions, problems, or any other concerns, please make a post in the AHK forum and we will be there to help.
