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

Since the Party Poker fall last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable leader in pure amounts of on line poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the largest money games, along with the fastest filling sit and go tournaments on the net. With that comes strength – the power to select your partners, online marketers, and nearer to our point; suitable computer software.

Long have I been suggesting Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are in fact the exact same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Recently though, these products have pushed the limits of acceptable use, a minimum of inside the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been forbidden from use on that internet site. This is unfortunate news, as a good product, not unlike a few of the suitable software program authorized by Stars, is now practically grounded because the largest poker site on the planet thinks it is too directly associated to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent operating for you, accumulating and mining player information and facts that you’ll be able to use on them later on. The factor is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to take place. The software program (database) is working all of the time for you. For most poker web sites, which is over the line of fairness, just as in actual life also.

But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only collect data on your competitors whenever you are at the table, just like you had been betting in an actual situation.

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

Upon an assessment of your account, we come across that you are running an external program recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated programs, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, such as instantly preventing entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held in the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

Hey, did you observe the "seizing all money" line? That’s what you can do whenever you are this huge!

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

So therein lies the heart of the trouble. Should you occur to wager on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to alter this ruling. I got a polite reply from the staff members at Poker Stars, except really, it is not likely to change. The good news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars appropriate software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
