Poker Calculator Announcement: Holdem Pirate … Hold em Hawk Prohibited by Poker Stars

[ English ]

Since the Party Poker collapse a few years ago, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable leader in sheer amounts of online poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest cash games, and the fastest filling up sit and go tournaments on the web. With that comes power – the strength to pick your partners, internet marketers, and more to our point; appropriate software.

Lengthy have I been recommending Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re really the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly desirable poker calculators. Lately though, these solutions have pushed the limits of acceptable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been prohibited from use on that website. This is sad news, as a good product, not unlike some of the appropriate software authorized by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker site on the planet thinks it is too directly associated to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret advisor operating for you, gathering and mining player information that you may use on them later on. The factor is, you do not have to be at the table for this to happen. The software program (database) is working all of the time for you. For the majority of poker sites, which is over the line of fairness, just as in real life also.

But Holdem 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 facts on your opponents whenever you are at the table, just like you had been playing in an actual situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an actual warning I received from Poker Stars whilst running Hold em Pirate:

Upon a review of your account, we come across that you’re running an external program recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its related software, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately blocking entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and confiscating all money held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual money account".

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

The "related applications" is the source of the trouble. The organization that created Hawk and Pirate also generate Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate actually gather data for these similar products, although appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lies the core of the trouble. Should you take place to wager on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have tried to change this ruling. I received a well mannered response from the personnel at Poker Stars, except really, it is not likely to alter. The great news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software checklist, and it is the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
