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

Since the Party Poker collapse last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the undeniable leader in sheer numbers of on line poker players. They’ve the largest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest money games, along with the quickest filling sit and go tournaments on the net. With that comes strength – the power to choose your associates, online marketers, and more to our point; acceptable computer software.

Long have I been advocating Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are actually the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly desirable poker calculators. Recently though, these solutions have pushed the limits of acceptable use, at least in the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been restricted from use on that site. This is depressing news, as a respectable product, not unlike some of the acceptable software authorized by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the largest poker web site on the planet thinks it is too closely associated to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret agent operating for you, collecting and digging through player information and facts that you’ll be able to use on them at a later date. The thing is, you do not need to be at the table for this to occur. The software program (database) is working all of the time for you. For the majority of poker internet sites, that’s over the line of justness, just as in actual life as well.

But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are truly Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These kinds of poker calculators only acquire facts on your opponents when you are at the table, just like you were playing in an actual scenario.

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

Upon a review of your account, we find that you’re using an external application recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Holdem 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 appropriating all monies held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you observe the "confiscating all money" line? That’s what you’ll be able to do whenever you are this big!

The "related applications" is the source of the trouble. The company that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate actually gather data for these related programs, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the root of the problem. If you occur to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to alter this judgment. I got a considerate reply from the staff at Poker Stars, but really, it isn’t likely to change. The great news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
