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

    [ English ]

    Since the Party Poker failure last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable leader in pure quantities of on-line poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the largest cash games, as well as the quickest filling sit and go tournaments online. With that comes strength – the power to pick your associates, internet marketers, and more to our point; suitable software program.

    Long have I been advocating Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re in fact the exact same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Lately though, these items have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, a minimum of within the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been forbidden from use on that internet site. This is unfortunate news, as a respectable product, not unlike a number of of the acceptable software program allowed by Stars, is now practically grounded because the largest poker site on the planet thinks it’s too directly connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

    An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret agent working for you, gathering and mining player data that you’ll be able to use on them at a later date. The thing is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to happen. The software program (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker web sites, that is over the line of fairness, just as in real life as well.

    But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are really Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Holdem Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only acquire information and facts on your opponents whenever you are at the table, just like you had been wagering in a live situation.

    So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s a real forewarning I received from Poker Stars whilst running Hold em Pirate:

    Following a review of your account, we uncover that you’re using 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, such as immediately blocking entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all funds held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real money account".

    Hey, did you observe the "seizing all money" line? That is what you’ll be able to do whenever you are this massive!

    The "related applications" is the source of the problem. The firm that created Hawk and Pirate also make Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate actually mine data for these related programs, whilst looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

    So therein lays the heart of the problem. In case you happen to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you’re out of luck, as I have tried to reverse this judgment. I got a polite response from the staff members at Poker Stars, except seriously, it’s not likely to change. The great news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars appropriate software program checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
