Mafia Poker is almost over but just in case we see more of it, Team Spockholm created a tool to help with all the clicking. From the get go, it was apparent that there wasn't a need to know how to play poker and the play/show was deemed the best strategy by most in the Mafia Wars community (1). The Heinz-a-Nator is tool that will utilize this strategy and save you clicks and more importantly time. Locate the Heinz-a-Nator in the Spockholm Toolbar. Just type in the first few letters and it should appear in the search bar. Once located, click on it once to activate.
If the Heinz-a-Nator doesn't appear in your search, open up the config page, click on the "Force reload Spocklets" link and try again.
Once activated, the Heinz-a-Nator window will appear in your game. To start, click on "Play Poker".
If you don't have enough Poker Cards, you can't play and the Heinz-a-Nator won't work. If this happens, go get some cards and try again. You need at least 5 to play a game.
Once you have Poker Cards, click on "Play Poker" and let it play. It will load the Mafia Poker page and you will see it flashing in the background. When the run is over, it will list your wins, losses and how many Poker Cards were used. Although the example run was short, the win rate was pretty bad. I've done much better, maybe if more cards were played the ratio would be closer to 50%. If we get more seasons of Mafia Poker, the Heinz-a-Nator will be updated and fine tuned.
If you are wondering where the name the Heinz-a-Nator came from, it was named after the German Professional Poker Player Pius Heinz. Heinz won the 2011 World Series of Poker and Eike of Team Spockholm is also from Germany. An interesting bit of trivia is that because Heinz hails from Germany, he was not required to pay taxes on his 8.7 million dollar share of the prize pool.
Poker may seem boring to some but it was really exciting to watch this tournament. It was televised live on a 30 minute delay.
