Since the Party Poker fall last fall, Poker Stars has surfaced as the undeniable leader in absolute amounts of internet poker players. They have the largest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest money games, plus the fastest filling up sit and go tournaments on line. With that comes strength – the strength to pick your partners, online marketers, and nearer to our point; acceptable computer software.

Long have I been suggesting Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re really the same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly satisfying poker calculators. Lately though, these products have pushed the limits of suitable use, a minimum of in the view of Poker Stars, and therefore have been forbidden from use on that site. This is sad news, as a decent product, not unlike a few of the appropriate computer software permitted 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 similar to a secret adviser working for you, amassing and mining player facts that you’ll be able to use on them at a later time. The thing is, you don’t have to be at the table for this to occur. The software program (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker websites, that’s over the line of justness, just as in real life also.

Except Hold em Pirate and Holdem Hawk are truly Empirical Poker Calculators, just the exact same as Holdem Indicator is. These types of poker calculators only accumulate info on your competitors whenever you are at the table, just like you were betting in an actual situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s an authentic alert I was sent from Poker Stars although running Hold em Pirate:

Following an evaluation of your account, we discover that you are running an external software program knownas Poker Sherlock, or its associated software, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, such as instantly blocking entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and confiscating all funds held in the relevant Poker Stars "real cash account".

Hey, did you notice the "seizing all money" line? That is what you are able to do when you are this massive!

The "related applications" is the source of the dilemma. The company that designed Hawk and Pirate also make Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate actually gather data for these associated products, whilst looking like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the heart of the problem. In the event you happen to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have tried to reverse this judgment. I got a well mannered response from the employees at Poker Stars, except really, it isn’t likely to change. The very good news though is that Holdem Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable software list, and it’s the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
