Poker Calculator Report: Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk Forbidden by Poker Stars

Since the Party Poker fall last fall, Poker Stars has come forth as the undeniable head in absolute quantities of net poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the biggest money games, plus the fastest filling sit down and go tournaments online. With that comes power – the strength to select your partners, online marketers, and nearer to our point; acceptable software.

Lengthy have I been advocating Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they are actually the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pressed the limits of suitable use, a minimum of within the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been restricted from use on that website. This is sad news, as a reasonable product, not unlike a number of of the suitable computer software allowed by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the biggest poker website on the planet thinks it is too directly related to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret adviser working for you, gathering and mining player facts that you may use on them at a later time. The thing is, you do not need to be at the table for this to occur. The computer software (database) is working all of the time for you. For most poker websites, that is over the line of justness, just as in actual life as well.

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

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s a real forewarning I was sent from Poker Stars although running Hold em Pirate:

Upon a review of your account, we locate that you might be using an external application identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated programs, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as immediately blocking entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual money account".

Hey, did you observe the "seizing all funds" line? That is what you can do when you are this large!

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

So therein sits the core of the trouble. If you take place to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have attempted to alter this ruling. I got a well mannered response from the staff at Poker Stars, except really, it is not likely to alter. The good news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
