Since the Party Poker failure a few years back, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable leader in absolute amounts of internet poker players. They have the largest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest money games, and the fastest filling up sit and go tournaments on-line. With that comes strength – the power to choose your partners, affiliate marketers, and nearer to our point; acceptable software program.

Lengthy have I been recommending Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they are truly the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Recently though, these solutions have pushed the boundaries of acceptable use, a minimum of in the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been restricted from use on that website. This is sad news, as a decent product, not unlike a few of the appropriate computer software authorized by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the biggest poker website on the planet thinks it’s too directly similar to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret agent operating for you, collecting and mining player information that you may use on them at a later time. The thing is, you don’t need to be at the table for this to take place. The software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker internet sites, that’s over the line of fairness, just as in actual life as well.

But Holdem Pirate and Hold em Hawk are really Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only acquire info on your competitors when you are at the table, just like you had been wagering in a live scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an authentic alert I got from Poker Stars whilst running Holdem Pirate:

Following a review of your account, we discover that you’re using an external software program identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as instantly blocking access to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all funds held inside the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you observe the "confiscating all monies" line? That’s what you may do whenever you are this huge!

The "related applications" is the source of the problem. The company that designed Hawk and Pirate also generate Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate in fact mine data for these associated programs, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lays the root of the dilemma. 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 reverse this ruling. I got a courteous response from the staff at Poker Stars, except really, it isn’t likely to alter. The great news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable computer software checklist, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be accepted by them.
