Since the Party Poker failure last fall, Poker Stars has emerged as the undeniable head in pure amounts of net poker players. They have the biggest tournaments, the most active tables, the biggest money games, along with the fastest filling sit down and go tournaments on line. With that comes strength – the strength to select your associates, internet marketers, and closer to our point; appropriate software.

Long have I been suggesting Holdem Hawk and Holdem Pirate (they’re in fact the same) poker calculators as simple to use and visibly pleasing poker calculators. Recently though, these products have pushed the limits of suitable use, at least within the view of Poker Stars, and hence have been forbidden from use on that internet site. This is depressing news, as a good product, not unlike a few of the acceptable computer software authorized by Stars, is now essentially grounded because the largest poker website on the planet thinks it is too closely connected to an Operative Poker Calculator.

An Operative Poker Calculator is just like a secret adviser working for you, accumulating and digging through player details that it is possible to use on them later on. The factor is, you don’t need to be at the table for this to occur. The software program (database) is working all of the time for you. For most poker web sites, that is over the line of justness, just as in actual life also.

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

So why the Poker Stars Smack? Here’s a real warning I received from Poker Stars although running Hold em Pirate:

Upon an assessment of your account, we come across that you’re using an external software program identifiedas Poker Sherlock, or its associated applications, Poker Edge, PokerBotPro, Hold em Hawk and Holdem Pirate……PokerStars shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately blocking entry 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 funds" line? That is what you can do when you are this massive!

The "related applications" is the origin of the difficulty. The business that created Hawk and Pirate also produce Poker Edge and PokerBotPro, which are data miners. Actually, I think that Stars thinks Hawk and Pirate really mine data for these similar programs, while appearing like an Empirical Poker Calculator on the surface.

So therein sits the crux of the difficulty. If you happen to bet on on Stars and have Hawk or Pirate, you might be out of luck, as I have attempted to reverse this judgment. I got a well mannered response from the employees at Poker Stars, but actually, it’s not likely to alter. The excellent news though is that Hold em Indicator has been added to Poker Stars suitable computer software checklist, and it is the only empirical calculator to be approved by them.
