Poker Calculator Report: Hold em Pirate and Hold em Hawk Barred by Poker Stars


Posted by Prince | Posted in Poker | Posted on 16-01-2014

Since the Party Poker failure a few years back, Poker Stars has come forth as the undeniable head in absolute quantities of on line poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the biggest money games, and the quickest filling sit down and go tournaments on the web. With that comes strength – the power to pick your associates, web marketers, and nearer to our point; suitable software program.

Lengthy have I been advocating Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are truly the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly satisfying poker calculators. Lately though, these solutions have pressed the boundaries of acceptable use, at least inside the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been forbidden from use on that internet site. This is sad news, as a respectable product, not unlike several of the appropriate software permitted by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker website on the planet thinks it’s too directly connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret adviser working for you, collecting and mining player data that it is possible to use against them at a later date. The factor is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to occur. The computer software (database) is working all of the time for you. For the majority of poker sites, that is over the line of fairness, just as in actual life also.

But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These kinds of poker calculators only gather information and facts on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you had been wagering in an actual scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here is a real alert I was sent from Poker Stars while running Holdem Pirate:

Following a review of your account, we come across that you’re using an external application identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated programs, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as immediately preventing access to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you notice the "confiscating all monies" line? That’s what you’ll be able to do when you are this big!

The "related applications" is the origin of the dilemma. The company that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I believe that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate in fact mine data for these related products, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the root of the dilemma. In the event you occur to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to change this judgment. I got a well mannered response from the staff members at Poker Stars, but genuinely, it isn’t likely to alter. The good news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable computer software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be accepted by them.
