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


Posted by Mara | Posted in Poker | Posted on 16-04-2011

Since the Party Poker collapse a few years ago, Poker Stars has emerged as the undeniable head in pure numbers of web-based poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest cash games, as well as the fastest filling up sit and go tournaments on the web. With that comes power – the power to choose your partners, web marketers, and nearer to our point; acceptable software program.

Long have I been suggesting Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are truly the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly satisfying poker calculators. Lately though, these solutions have pressed the limits of acceptable use, at least inside the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been forbidden from use on that web site. This is unfortunate news, as a good product, not unlike a number of of the acceptable computer software authorized by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker web site on the planet thinks it is too closely associated to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret agent operating for you, gathering and digging through player info 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 happen. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker websites, that’s over the line of fairness, just as in real life as well.

But Hold em Pirate and Holdem Hawk are actually Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Hold em Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only collect information and facts on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you were betting in a live scenario.

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

Upon an evaluation of your account, we come across that you might be using an external application identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as immediately blocking access to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held in the relevant Poker Stars "real money account".

Hey, did you observe the "confiscating all funds" line? That’s what you are able to do when you are this large!

The "related applications" is the source of the issue. The company that designed Hawk and Pirate also make Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate in fact gather data for these similar programs, while looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lies the heart of the trouble. If you occur to play on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have attempted to change this ruling. I received a considerate response from the personnel at Poker Stars, but seriously, it is not likely to change. The excellent news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
