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

Since the Party Poker collapse last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable leader in sheer quantities of on-line poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest money games, along with the fastest filling up sit down and go tournaments online. With that comes power – the power to select your partners, online marketers, and closer to our point; acceptable computer software.

Long have I been advocating Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re actually the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pushed the boundaries of suitable use, at least inside the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been prohibited from use on that site. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike some of the suitable computer software permitted by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the biggest poker internet site on the planet thinks it’s too closely related to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret adviser working for you, gathering and mining player information that you are able to use on them at a later time. The factor is, you don’t need to be at the table for this to occur. The software program (database) is working all of the time for you. For most poker websites, that’s over the line of fairness, just as in actual life also.

Except Hold em Pirate and Holdem Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Holdem Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only collect information on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you were betting in a live scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here is a genuine alert I got from Poker Stars whilst running Hold em Pirate:

Upon a review of your account, we discover that you are using an external program knownas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem 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 appropriating all funds held inside the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you notice the "appropriating all money" line? That’s what you can do whenever you are this massive!

The "related applications" is the origin of the problem. The business that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate really gather data for these associated products, although looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lays the core of the dilemma. In the event 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 ruling. I received a courteous reply from the employees at Poker Stars, except really, it isn’t likely to change. The great news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars appropriate software list, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
