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


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 03-10-2013

Since the Party Poker failure a few years back, Poker Stars has surfaced as the undeniable leader in pure numbers of online poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most lively tables, the biggest cash games, and also the quickest filling up sit down and go tournaments on the net. With that comes strength – the strength to select your partners, affiliates, and closer to our point; appropriate software.

Lengthy have I been suggesting Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re really the exact same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly satisfying poker calculators. Lately though, these items have pressed the limits of suitable use, a minimum of inside the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been restricted from use on that website. This is sad news, as a respectable product, not unlike some of the acceptable software program authorized by Stars, is now virtually grounded because the biggest poker site on the planet thinks it’s too closely related to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret agent working for you, collecting and mining player facts that it is possible to use against them later on. The factor is, you do not need to be at the table for this to occur. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker internet sites, which is over the line of justness, just as in actual life as well.

But Hold em Pirate and Hold em Hawk are actually Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Hold em Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only acquire facts on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you had been betting in a live situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s a real alert I received from Poker Stars whilst running Holdem Pirate:

Following a review of your account, we find that you might be using an external application identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled 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 monies held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual money account".

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

The "related applications" is the origin of the issue. The business that designed Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I believe that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate really gather data for these similar products, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the core of the issue. In the event you take place to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have tried to alter this ruling. I got a polite reply from the personnel at Poker Stars, except actually, it’s not likely to change. The very good news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
