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

Since the Party Poker fall last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the undeniable leader in absolute quantities of on-line poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the largest money games, and also the fastest filling up sit down and go tournaments on the net. With that comes power – the strength to select your associates, web marketers, and nearer to our point; suitable software.

Lengthy have I been promoting Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re really the exact same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Recently though, these products have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, at least in the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been restricted from use on that internet site. This is unfortunate news, as a good product, not unlike a few of the acceptable software program authorized by Stars, is now practically grounded because the largest poker internet site on the planet thinks it is too directly similar to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent operating for you, collecting and digging through player details that you are able to use against them later on. The thing is, you don’t need to be at the table for this to occur. The software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker web sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in actual life also.

But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are actually Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only accumulate information and facts on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you had been betting in a live scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here is a genuine forewarning I was sent from Poker Stars although running Hold em Pirate:

Following a review of your account, we locate that you might be using an external application knownas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including instantly blocking entry to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real money account".

Hey, did you observe the "confiscating all money" line? That is what you may do when you are this huge!

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

So therein sits the root 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 reverse this judgment. I received a considerate response from the employees at Poker Stars, but definitely, it’s not likely to alter. The good 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.
