      I'm looking to start using PokerStars Hotkeys and am curious what people have for set-ups?
      I play SnG's, but the set-ups for any games would be appreciated.

      Also if you could share any issues or recommendations based on your experiences, I would appreciate it.

      I use 5 hotkeys and have found that they work best for me.
      I also choose the keys that are very close to each other and make sense for my left hand.
      They are
      A - All in
      F - Fold to any bet
      S - Call
      C - Check
      V - Bet (if I choose a sizing) or Raise (pre flop is min raise)

      As you see I use 2 columns of letters
      Top column is for all in, fold and call!
      Bottom column is for raise/bet or check.

      I experimented before with different letters and lay outs but this one seems most natural to me and my left hand and fingers have gotten used to it for mass multi tabling.

      Look forward hearing about your future lay out!

      What I have right now is:

      A = bet/raise
      S = check/call
      f = fold to any bet


      The only negative thing I would say is sometimes you missclick. For example, If you want to bet, but you accidentally click on check.

      I had this set-up going tonight:

      Z = Fold
      X = Check
      C = Call
      V = Bet 2.15x
      B = Bet 3x
      F = Bet 40%
      G = Bet 55%

      I really liked it at the start but I think for the next little while I am going to just use this set-up:

      Z = Fold
      X = Check
      C = Call
      and use the mouse for all Bets/Raises

      you know you can use your mouse wheel to adjust bet sizes?

      :f_biggrin: - yes!!!

      I just configure some default bet-sizes to save time when opening a pot, and then use the wheel to increase/decrease the bet amount in increments of small blinds when the situation calls for it.
