Since the Party Poker collapse last fall, Poker Stars has come forth as the indisputable leader in sheer numbers of web-based poker players. They’ve the largest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest money games, plus the fastest filling sit and go tournaments on the net. With that comes strength – the strength to choose your partners, internet marketers, and more to our point; suitable software.

Lengthy have I been advocating Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they are really the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pushed the limits of acceptable use, a minimum of in the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been prohibited from use on that site. This is unfortunate news, as a respectable product, not unlike a few of the acceptable software authorized by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker internet site on the planet thinks it’s too directly similar to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is like a secret adviser working for you, gathering and digging through player information and facts that you may use against them down the line. The thing is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to occur. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For most poker web sites, that is over the line of fairness, just as in actual life as well.

But Holdem Pirate and Holdem Hawk are truly Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only collect information on your opponents when you are at the table, just like you had been wagering in a live scenario.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here is an authentic alert I was sent from Poker Stars whilst running Holdem Pirate:

Upon an assessment of your account, we locate that you might be using an external program identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated software, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as immediately preventing entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and confiscating all monies held inside the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

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

The "related applications" is the origin of the problem. The corporation that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate really mine data for these related programs, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the root of the problem. When you occur to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have attempted to alter this judgment. I got a courteous reply from the staff members at Poker Stars, but definitely, it’s not likely to alter. The very good news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable computer software list, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be accepted by them.
