Poker Pros Still Crushing Top Poker Bot Going Into Last Day Of Match

Human Team Up 737,244 With Less Than 6K Hands Left


On Thursday morning, less than 6,000 hands remained in the “Brains vs. AI” match pitting four of the world’s top heads-up no-limit hold’em players against Carnegie Mellon University’s poker bot “Claudico”, and the humans were up a whopping 737,244.

Thursday was the last day of the match. You can watch a live stream here.

That’s not a dollar value, but the pros stand to make $100,000 each when the match concludes. Microsoft is a sponsor and the match is being held at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh.

Doug Polk, Dong Kim, Bjorn Li and Jason Les have really been dominating the machine consistently over the two-week long stretch. Only Les is in the red to Claudico.

The match is being advertised as the first time that a computer program has played heads-up no-limit hold’em in competition with top human players. It has been getting a lot of mainstream attention, despite it not being close at all. No-limit hold’em is very complex game.
