• Poker Calculator Announcement: Hold’em Pirate … Hold em Hawk Forbidden by Poker Stars

    [ English ]

    Since the Party Poker failure last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable head in absolute amounts of on-line poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest money games, and also the fastest filling up sit and go tournaments on-line. With that comes strength – the strength to choose your associates, internet marketers, and closer to our point; suitable software program.

    Lengthy have I been recommending Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are in fact the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Recently though, these products have pressed the boundaries of acceptable use, a minimum of in the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been restricted from use on that website. This is depressing news, as a reasonable product, not unlike a number of of the suitable software authorized by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the biggest poker web site on the planet thinks it’s too directly connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

    An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent working for you, amassing and digging through player information that you may use against them at a later time. The factor is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to take place. The software program (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker web sites, that’s over the line of justness, just as in real life as well.

    Except Holdem Pirate and Hold em Hawk are really Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only accumulate details on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you were wagering in an actual scenario.

    So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an actual warning I received from Poker Stars while running Holdem Pirate:

    Upon an evaluation of your account, we locate that you are using an external program identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, including instantly preventing entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all monies held in the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

    Hey, did you notice the "seizing all money" line? That’s what it is possible to do whenever you are this large!

    The "related applications" is the source of the difficulty. The company that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate really mine data for these associated products, whilst appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

    So therein lies the heart of the issue. Should you occur to wager on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have attempted to alter this judgment. I got a considerate response from the employees at Poker Stars, but actually, it’s not likely to change. The excellent news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable computer software list, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
