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

[ English ]

Since the Party Poker failure last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable head in pure amounts of online poker players. They have the largest tournaments, the most lively tables, the biggest money games, and also the quickest filling up sit and go tournaments on line. With that comes power – the strength to pick your partners, web marketers, and closer to our point; appropriate software.

Long have I been recommending Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re truly the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly desirable poker calculators. Recently though, these products have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been prohibited from use on that site. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike some of the appropriate computer software authorized by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker website on the planet thinks it is too directly connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent operating for you, collecting and digging through player data that you are able to use on them down the line. The factor is, you do not have to be at the table for this to happen. The software (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker sites, that’s over the line of justness, just as in real life as well.

Except Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only acquire info on your competitors whenever you are at the table, just like you had been playing in a live scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here is an authentic warning I got from Poker Stars while running Hold em Pirate:

Upon an overview of your account, we uncover that you’re using an external program recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its related software, 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, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and appropriating all funds held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

Hey, did you observe the "appropriating all money" line? That is what it is possible to do whenever you are this massive!

The "related applications" is the origin of the trouble. 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 in fact gather data for these similar products, whilst looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the crux of the dilemma. Should you take place to wager on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have attempted to alter this judgment. I received a considerate response from the staff at Poker Stars, except really, it isn’t likely to change. The good news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
