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

Since the Party Poker collapse a few years ago, Poker Stars has surfaced as the undeniable leader in absolute amounts of web-based poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest cash games, along with the quickest filling up sit and go tournaments on the web. With that comes power – the strength to select your partners, affiliates, and more to our point; acceptable software.

Lengthy have I been promoting Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they are actually the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly desirable poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, a minimum of inside the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been prohibited from use on that internet site. This is depressing news, as a reasonable product, not unlike some of the suitable computer software authorized by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the largest poker website on the planet thinks it’s too closely similar to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent working for you, amassing and mining player details that you can use against them at a later date. The thing is, you do not need to be at the table for this to happen. The software (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker sites, that’s over the line of fairness, just as in real life as well.

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

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

Following an overview of your account, we come across that you are running an external application knownas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, 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, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and appropriating all money held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you observe the "appropriating all money" line? That’s what you are able to do whenever you are this large!

The "related applications" is the source of the trouble. The corporation that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate truly mine data for these related products, although appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lays the root of the issue. Should you happen to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you’re out of luck, as I have tried to change this judgment. I got a courteous response from the personnel at Poker Stars, but genuinely, it isn’t likely to change. The good news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software program checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
