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

by Carmelo on March 14th, 2013

Since the Party Poker fall last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable head in absolute amounts of on line poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the largest money games, as well as the quickest filling sit and go tournaments on-line. With that comes power – the strength to pick your associates, affiliate marketers, and nearer to our point; acceptable software.

Lengthy have I been promoting Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they are actually the exact same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pushed the boundaries of acceptable use, at least in the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been prohibited from use on that website. This is depressing news, as a respectable product, not unlike several of the acceptable computer software authorized by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the biggest poker internet site on the planet thinks it’s too closely connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret adviser operating for you, amassing and digging through player information and facts that you’ll be able to use against them down the road. The thing is, you do not have to be at the table for this to occur. The software program (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker websites, which is over the line of fairness, just as in real life as well.

Except Hold em Pirate and Hold em Hawk are actually Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Hold em Indicator is. These varieties of poker calculators only acquire information on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you had been playing in an actual scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an actual alert I got from Poker Stars while running Hold em Pirate:

Following a review of your account, we uncover that you might be running an external software program recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its related programs, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately blocking access to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and appropriating all funds held in the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

Hey, did you notice the "confiscating all funds" line? That’s what you may do when you are this big!

The "related applications" is the origin of the trouble. The organization that designed Hawk and Pirate also make Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate in fact gather data for these related programs, whilst looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the core of the dilemma. In the event 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 polite reply from the employees at Poker Stars, but seriously, it’s not likely to alter. The good news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software checklist, and it is the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
