• Poker Calculator Announcement: Holdem Pirate … Hold’em Hawk Forbidden by Poker Stars

    Since the Party Poker collapse a few years ago, Poker Stars has surfaced as the undeniable head in absolute quantities of online poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest money games, and the quickest filling up sit down and go tournaments online. With that comes power – the power to select your associates, online marketers, and more to our point; appropriate software program.

    Long have I been suggesting Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re actually the exact same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Lately though, these items have pushed the boundaries of suitable use, at least in the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been forbidden from use on that internet site. This is unfortunate news, as a respectable product, not unlike a number of of the appropriate software program allowed by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the biggest poker web site on the planet thinks it’s too directly associated to an Operative Poker Calculator.

    An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent working for you, gathering and mining player data that it is possible to use on them at a later time. The thing is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to occur. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker sites, which is over the line of justness, just as in real life also.

    Except Hold em Pirate and Holdem Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These varieties of poker calculators only gather info on your opponents whenever you are at the table, just like you had been wagering in a live scenario.

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

    Following an assessment of your account, we find that you might be running an external application recognizedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, including instantly blocking access to the Games to such User, terminating such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

    Hey, did you observe the "confiscating all funds" line? That’s what you can do whenever you are this massive!

    The "related applications" is the source of the difficulty. The corporation 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 really mine data for these related products, although appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

    So therein lies the crux of the difficulty. When you happen to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have tried to alter this ruling. I received a well mannered response from the personnel at Poker Stars, except actually, it isn’t likely to alter. The excellent news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars appropriate software program checklist, and it is the only empirical calculator to be accepted by them.
