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

Since the Party Poker fall a few years back, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable leader in pure amounts of web based poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the biggest cash games, and the quickest filling sit down and go tournaments on line. With that comes power – the strength to select your associates, affiliates, and nearer to our point; acceptable software.

Long have I been promoting Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re really the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Lately though, these solutions have pressed the limits of acceptable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been prohibited from use on that website. This is unfortunate news, as a reasonable product, not unlike a few of the acceptable computer software permitted by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the biggest poker site on the planet thinks it is too directly similar to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret adviser working for you, amassing and mining player facts that you’ll be able to use against 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 of the time for you. For most poker internet sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in real life as well.

Except Holdem Pirate and Hold em Hawk are actually Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only collect information and 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 is an actual alert I was sent from Poker Stars whilst running Holdem Pirate:

Following an overview of your account, we come across that you are running an external software program identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as instantly blocking entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and confiscating all money held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual money account".

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

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

So therein lies the root of the trouble. When you occur to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you’re out of luck, as I have tried to alter this judgment. I received a well mannered reply from the staff at Poker Stars, except seriously, it isn’t likely to alter. The good news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software list, and it is the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
