Since the Party Poker collapse last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the indisputable leader in pure quantities of web based poker players. They have the largest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest money games, plus the fastest filling sit down and go tournaments online. With that comes strength – the strength to select your partners, affiliates, and nearer to our point; suitable software.

Lengthy have I been suggesting Hold em Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re actually the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, a minimum of within the view of Poker Stars, and consequently have been restricted from use on that website. This is sad news, as a reasonable product, not unlike several of the acceptable software permitted by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the largest poker web site on the planet thinks it is too directly connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret adviser operating for you, accumulating and digging through player facts that it is possible to use on them at a later date. The thing is, you don’t need to be at the table for this to take place. The computer software (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker internet sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in real life as well.

But Hold em Pirate and Holdem Hawk are in fact Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These sorts of poker calculators only gather facts on your competitors whenever you are at the table, just like you had been playing in a live situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an authentic forewarning I received from Poker Stars whilst running Hold em Pirate:

Upon a review of your account, we find that you’re using an external software program knownas Poker Sherlock, or its related programs, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately preventing entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held inside the relevant Poker Stars "actual money account".

Hey, did you notice the "seizing all money" line? That’s what you can do whenever you are this huge!

The "related applications" is the source of the difficulty. The business that designed Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I believe that Stars suspects Hawk and Pirate in fact mine data for these related programs, whilst appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein lies the heart of the dilemma. Should you take place to wager on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you are out of luck, as I have tried to reverse this ruling. I got a courteous response from the staff at Poker Stars, but seriously, it is not likely to change. The excellent news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars acceptable software program list, and it is the only empirical calculator to be accepted by them.
