Championship Poker Bot: ‘A Nuclear Weapon For Poker’

When asked if he thought, in the future, if learning from what his program has discovered would be mandatory for all those wanting to compete at the top of the game, Sandholm didn’t mince words.

“I think so. It’s a bit of a nuclear weapon for poker. You don’t want to be bringing a knife to a gun fight.”

Certainly a strong statement, but Sandholm’s success with his program lends weight to the words. This year his bot won both categories of competition for heads-up no-limit at the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) Annual Computer Poker Competition, beating each opponent along the way with statistical significance.
