Since the Party Poker collapse last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the indisputable head in pure numbers of online poker players. They’ve the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the largest money games, and the quickest filling up sit down and go tournaments on the internet. With that comes power – the strength to pick your partners, affiliates, and closer to our point; acceptable computer software.

Lengthy have I been advocating Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate (they’re really the exact same) poker calculators as easy to use and visibly attractive poker calculators. Recently though, these solutions have pressed the boundaries of suitable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been prohibited from use on that web site. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike a number of of the suitable software program permitted by Stars, is now practically grounded because the biggest poker website on the planet thinks it is too closely related to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is similar to a secret advisor working for you, gathering and mining player information that you can use against them down the road. The thing is, you do not have to be at the table for this to happen. The software program (database) is working all the time for you. For the majority of poker internet sites, which is over the line of justness, just as in actual life also.

But Hold em Pirate and Holdem Hawk are really Empirical Poker Calculators, just the same as Holdem Indicator is. These varieties of poker calculators only acquire information on your opponents whenever you are at the table, just like you had been betting in an actual situation.

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s a genuine alert I received from Poker Stars although running Holdem Pirate:

Following an overview of your account, we uncover that you are using an external application knownas Poker Sherlock, or its related applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Holdem Hawk and Hold em Pirate……PokerStars shall be permitted to take such action as it sees fit, including instantly preventing entry to the Games to such User, closing such User’s account with PokerStars and seizing all money held within the relevant Poker Stars "actual cash account".

Hey, did you notice the "appropriating all funds" line? That’s what it is possible to do whenever you are this big!

The "related applications" is the source of the issue. The organization that designed Hawk and Pirate also generate Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. In fact, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate really gather data for these similar products, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the core of the issue. Should you occur to wager on 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 reply from the staff members at Poker Stars, but seriously, it isn’t likely to change. The great news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable computer software list, and it is the only empirical calculator to be authorized by them.
