Poker Calculator Announcement: Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk Prohibited by Poker Stars

Since the Party Poker fall last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable head in pure numbers of internet based poker players. They have the largest tournaments, the most lively tables, the biggest cash games, and the fastest filling up sit down and go tournaments on the net. With that comes strength – the strength to pick your associates, online marketers, and more to our point; appropriate software.

Long have I been advocating Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are really the exact same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Recently though, these products have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been restricted from use on that website. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike a number of of the appropriate software program allowed by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker web site on the planet thinks it’s too directly similar to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret advisor operating for you, amassing and digging through player data that it is possible to use against them down the road. The factor is, you do not need to be at the table for this to take place. The computer software (database) is working all of the time for you. For the majority of poker internet sites, which is over the line of justness, just as in real life also.

Except Holdem Pirate and Hold em Hawk are truly Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These varieties of poker calculators only acquire info on your opponents when you are at the table, just like you had been playing in an actual situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here is a real forewarning I was sent from Poker Stars whilst running Holdem Pirate:

Following an evaluation of your account, we uncover that you might be using an external application knownas Poker Sherlock, or its related software, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, such as immediately preventing entry to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all monies held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

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

The "related applications" is the source of the problem. The business that created Hawk and Pirate also make Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate really mine data for these similar programs, although appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the root of the trouble. When you take place to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have tried to change this ruling. I received a polite reply from the staff at Poker Stars, except seriously, it is not likely to alter. The excellent news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software program checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
