Poker Calculator Report: Hold em Pirate … Holdem Hawk Barred by Poker Stars

Saturday, 11. December 2010

Since the Party Poker collapse a few years ago, Poker Stars has come forth as the indisputable head in sheer quantities of web-based poker players. They have the largest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest money games, and the quickest filling up sit and go tournaments online. With that comes power – the strength to choose your partners, affiliate marketers, and closer to our point; suitable software.

Lengthy have I been suggesting Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they are really the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Recently though, these items have pushed the boundaries of acceptable use, at least inside the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been banned from use on that web site. This is depressing news, as a respectable product, not unlike a number of of the appropriate software program permitted by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the largest poker internet site on the planet thinks it is too closely related to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret agent operating for you, collecting and digging through player information that you can use against them at a later time. The thing is, you do not have to be at the table for this to occur. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker web sites, that’s over the line of fairness, just as in actual life also.

But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are truly Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These kinds of poker calculators only accumulate details on your opponents when you are at the table, just like you were playing in an actual scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an authentic warning I was sent from Poker Stars although running Holdem Pirate:

Upon a review of your account, we locate that you might be running an external application recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated programs, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately preventing entry to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all monies held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real money account".

Hey, did you notice the "seizing all funds" line? That is what it is possible to do when you are this large!

The "related applications" is the origin of the issue. The organization 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 programs, whilst looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lays the crux of the issue. In the event you occur to wager on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to change this ruling. I got a courteous reply from the personnel at Poker Stars, except truly, it’s not likely to change. The excellent news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars appropriate computer software checklist, and it is the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
