Poker Calculator Report: Holdem Pirate … Hold em Hawk Prohibited by Poker Stars

Since the Party Poker failure last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable leader in sheer amounts of web-based poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the largest cash games, and the quickest filling up sit down and go tournaments on the net. With that comes strength – the power to pick your associates, internet marketers, and more to our point; appropriate software program.

Lengthy have I been promoting Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are actually the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Lately though, these items have pressed the boundaries of acceptable use, a minimum of in the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been banned from use on that website. This is unfortunate news, as a good product, not unlike several of the appropriate software program permitted by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the biggest poker website on the planet thinks it is too closely connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret advisor working for you, accumulating and mining player facts that you are able to use on them down the road. The factor is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to take place. The software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in real life also.

But Hold em Pirate and Hold em Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only collect facts on your opponents whenever you are at the table, just like you were playing in an actual situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s a genuine alert I got from Poker Stars whilst running Holdem Pirate:

Upon a review of your account, we find that you are running an external application identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated software, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately blocking access to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all funds held inside the relevant Poker Stars "actual money account".

Hey, did you notice the "appropriating all funds" line? That’s what you’ll be able to do when you are this huge!

The "related applications" is the source of the problem. The corporation that created Hawk and Pirate also generate Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate truly gather data for these associated products, while looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the root of the trouble. If you occur to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to alter this ruling. I received a polite response from the staff at Poker Stars, but truly, it isn’t likely to change. The excellent news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
