Betting a Fixed Amount (5 x 3 possibilities):
There are five fixed bet keys that can be assigned to bet/raise. If you enter F1 in the top box and put in 50 for the Bet Amount and set the units to %Pot, then when you press F1 the betting box will be changed to a 50% of the the Pot Size Bet. If you are raising, then it will be a 50% of the pot size raise.
The 1 Click column are for bet amounts if you press the key or mouse button once. The 2 Click and 3 Click columns are the bet amounts if you press the key twice or three times quickly. You can disable the 2 Click and 3 Click feature with a checkbox described below (which allows the 1 Click feature to operate more quickly).
Units: You can specify your bet to be in terms of % of Pot, # or BB (big blinds), # or SB (small blinds),
Note: If the pot has been raised before you, then the amount shown will be approximate for % of Pot units.
For a fast way to bet the pot, assign a key or mouse button to the Bet Pot function.
You can assign a key to go ALL IN (or make the maximum allowed bet. The Shortcuts software will put 9999999 in the betting box, and the poker software will translate this to the maximum allowed bet for you.
Auto Click Bet/Raise Button after Fixed Bet :
If you check this option, then the Bet or Raise button will also be clicked when you make any Fixed Bets defined on this tab. This saves you the extra step of having to manually click the Bet or Raise Button (or pressing the Bet or Raise key assigned in the Action1 Keys. I recommend NOT using this feature until you are very comfortable with this software.
Disable 2 Click and 3 Click above:
Checking this checkbox will disable the 2 Click and 3 Click feature. This allows the 1 Click keys to operate more quickly.
Round all bets to be a multiple of x times the Small Blind:
This value will round your bets to be some multiple of the Small Blind (set to 0 to disable). This is useful if you want your bets to be rounded to whole values. Many users like a value of 1, so that every bet will be evenly divisible by the small blind amount and you will get "normal" looking bet amounts.
If you would like larger rounding increments, then try 2, which will round your bets to be an even multiple of the big blind amount.
Some users like to confuse their opponents with very unusual bet sizes. By setting this value to 0, the software will not round your bet size.
If the Bet/Raise values are not what you expect:
When rake has been taken out of the pot: Full Tilt takes money out of the pot for their rake. This amount is still considered to be in the pot for all pot calculations (and all bet/raise amounts), but the amount of the rake doesn't show up on your screen when you look at the amount in the pot. So a 100% pot will be slightly higher than what appears to be in the pot, because this bet also includes the amount of the rake.
