Randy ‘Nanonoko’ Lew Gets ACR Software Up to Scratch
The Winning Poker Network is introducing a raft of new anti poker bot measures to further protect the integrity of their games. The latest software update sees some changes, including Run It Twice, that will make the client the envy of the online poker world.
A big update over at @ACR_POKER in our stance to fight against bots and RTA. It is going to be very hard for them to continue. https://t.co/8wcp1KquJJ

After walking away from his deal with the much-maligned PokerStars, Nanonoko found a new home at Americas Card Room (ACR) where he promised CEO Phil Nagy that he would help get their software up to scratch.
In a new consulting role, he uses his experience as a long-time professional to instruct the programming team how to spot and avoid collusion and bot rings.
New features in the new software update over at @ACR_POKER , all sites need run it twice IMO so great to see it added! https://t.co/spxjV8XNwf

Nanonoko Explains How Poker Bot Users Are Finished
Most poker bot software, if not all, relies on being able to read the screen and understand where in the game tree each table is.
If the graphics change then the bot doesn’t work properly until it is adjusted.
Nanonoko tells us that WPN sites can now change the pixilation of the screen at will. This means any bot can only work for a few hands before being unable to read the screen. Automated bots are now finished!
Nanonoko was a little cagey on the Captcha system, to avoid giving too much away to the bot programmers who will no doubt attempt to come up with counter measures.
A New Era of Anti-Cheating
It is also nice to see the popular Run It Twice feature being implemented. This ability to run out the board twice in all-in situations adds an extra degree of excitement on top of helping to avoid variance.
Think back a couple of years back when the WPN software was heavily criticised. So much hard work has been done to improve the client to an industry-leading standard.
The Winning Poker Network is ready to usher in a new era of anti-cheating measures. Hopefully, stories such as those about Fedor Kruse at the end of last year will never crop up again.
