Poker Calculator Report: Hold’em Pirate … Hold em Hawk Barred by Poker Stars

Since the Party Poker fall a few years ago, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable head in pure numbers of net poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest cash games, as well as the quickest filling sit and go tournaments on the web. With that comes power – the power to choose your partners, web marketers, and nearer to our point; acceptable computer software.

Long have I been promoting Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re truly the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly desirable poker calculators. Lately though, these solutions have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been banned from use on that site. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike several of the suitable computer software authorized by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the biggest poker internet site on the planet thinks it is too directly connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret advisor operating for you, collecting and mining player information and facts that you can use on them at a later time. The thing is, you do not have to be at the table for this to take place. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker internet sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in real life as well.

Except Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are really Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only collect facts on your opponents when you are at the table, just like you were wagering in a live situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an authentic forewarning I got from Poker Stars although running Holdem Pirate:

Upon an assessment of your account, we uncover that you are using an external program identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately preventing access to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and confiscating all money held in the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

Hey, did you notice the "appropriating all funds" line? That’s what you can do when you are this big!

The "related applications" is the origin of the dilemma. The company that designed Hawk and Pirate also make Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I believe that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate really mine data for these associated products, while looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the crux of the problem. Should you take place to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to reverse this ruling. I got a considerate reply from the staff members at Poker Stars, but actually, it is not likely to change. The great news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software program checklist, and it is the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
