Another Holdem Hawk Update

The Holdem Hawk/Holdem Pirate folks released another updated today, and this one actually says it fixes the preflop tables, so hurray for that. Once again you can download these updates at http://www.holdemhawk.com/builds.html and they will inform you when you launch the program that a fix exists.

The fact that they messed up the pre-flop tables isn't great, but the new ability to edit them is a very nice enhancement. You can essentially emulate any preflop strategy you like including the one on www.lowlimitholdem.com, although I don't recommend it unless you are playing at the right kind of table (one where most of the people are seeing the flop every hand). These tables do exist online, but they are much more plentiful in brick & mortar cardrooms.

Hawk/Pirate Update

The Holdem Hawk/Holdem Pirate folks released a patch today. Their read-me documentation leaves a little bit to be desired. For example, on the day they introduced the new editable pre-flop hand chart the read-me file said this:

4/20/061.0.6110.446
-Fixed issues with Poker Stars
-Fixed issues Titan/Noble
-Fixed issues with Party Poker


Today's patch says:

4/25/061.0.6115.450

-Fixed issues with Poker Stars
-Fixed issues Titan/Noble

and I'm hopeful they've corrected some of the issues with their new editable pre-flop hands that I've encountered so far even though you'd never get a clue by reading the read-me. Updates for this program are located at http://www.holdemhawk.com/builds.html and our review page on Low Limit Holdem is located at http://www.lowlimitholdem.com/holdem_hawk.htm. Even with its flaws the company who created it seems to be doing right by releasing patches and fixes on a regular basis and the ability to calculate discounted outs instantly shouldn't be discounted (again, no pun intended).
