Poker Calculator Announcement: Hold’em Pirate and Hold’em Hawk Prohibited by Poker Stars

Since the Party Poker failure a few years back, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable leader in sheer numbers of internet based poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest cash games, plus the fastest filling up sit and go tournaments online. With that comes strength – the strength to select your associates, online marketers, and closer to our point; appropriate computer software.

Lengthy have I been advocating Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re really the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Lately though, these solutions have pushed the limits of acceptable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been forbidden from use on that web site. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike a number of of the suitable computer software permitted by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the biggest poker web site on the planet thinks it’s too closely related to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret adviser working for you, gathering and mining player information and facts that you’ll be able to use against them at a later time. The factor is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to occur. The software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in actual life as well.

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

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

Upon a review of your account, we come across that you’re running an external software program identifiedas 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, such as immediately blocking entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and appropriating all monies held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you observe the "seizing all funds" line? That’s what you are able to do whenever you are this massive!

The "related applications" is the source of the problem. The business that designed Hawk and Pirate also generate Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate really mine data for these associated programs, while looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the root of the dilemma. If you happen to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have tried to reverse this ruling. I got a considerate reply from the personnel at Poker Stars, except actually, it isn’t likely to alter. The great news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable computer software list, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be accepted by them.
