The program is in full compliance with PokerStars rules and is included in the list of tools and services that are permitted.


This will describe how to use the program in Aurora mode. Launching in the old client will be described on the next page. To use the program in Aurora mode, do the following:

    1. Close PokerStars client.
    2. Launch NiceHandOmaha program and check its general settings, as shown in Figure 7-1. The main thing here is to check that the Use StarsCaption or StarsHelper box is not checked. After that, the program must be closed.
    3. Enter the PokerOCR program folder. Edit the PokerOCR.ini file


The most important thing is to set Use = 1. This means that PokerOCR program will be used for PokerStars room. Nik is the name of the player in the room, SeatPos sets the position at the table in accordance with Fig. 9-3. After that, the file must be closed.

We recommend the following order for starting the programs. PokerStars client always starts first. Then, without opening the tables for the game, NiceHandOmaha program is launched. The rest of the poker programs can be launched in any way convenient for the player. At the end of the game session, everything must be done in the reverse order. Close the tables first, then NiceHandOmaha and close PokerStars client last.

Why do I need to run NiceHandOmaha after starting the client? Simply because it determines its further actions by the presence of running poker clients. It is also important for security reasons. Better to enter the password in the client before launching third-party programs. It should become a habit.
