The same guys who brought their cutting-edge AI poker-bot to the tables in 2015 and 2017 are back with a new and improved version.
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

Someone on another forum mentioned a theory that once a game is more or less solved, public interest in the game falls way off. They cited chess and backgammon.

It makes sense. They idea of competing using guile, wit and creativity is a lot more exciting than competing based on who can best remember a strategy figured out by a computer.

On that note, based on what I've seen top poker players come very close to the computer's perfect strategy, while top chess players don't come very close.
