Episode #455 - April 5th, 2017

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast: Creator of the EPT John Duthie joins us to talk about the history of the tour and his new venture. To begin, Adam is crowd funding for Boston and the WSOP Fantasy League is going again. This week in the news: Pokerstars rolls out their new VIP system and Steve Ruddock of Online Poker Report joins us to run through and review the changes. Adam and Terrence review their matches against the University of Alberta HUNL bot and more. John Duthie then joins us to talk about the beginnings of the EPT and how it evolved to one of the most successful poker tours. John is now working with Party Poker to grow their live tournament series and he talks about that and working in the current state of poker.

I'm betting that the difference between the robot and our humans is significant.

At 4:48 Ross calls people who don't come to this forum 'hosers'. Love it already.

It wasn't what I expected it would be, but that milkshake did sound amazing.

Re: Pokercast 455 - John Duthie & Stars VIP Changes with Steve Ruddock

Listening to the Podcast, Adam seems to not understand how these academic poker-playing AI programs are developed. They play millions and millions of hands against itself to eventually find/converge to a quasi-optimal strategy. No poker knowledge (ranges, etc.) are programmed in by the human programmers, so that the depth and quality of the poker knowledge of the human programmers should be totally irrelevant to the computer's AI ultimate strategy.

And seeing a strange action may be due to the strategy being only quasi-optimal rather than truly GTO (e.g., not enough hands have been played to fully converge). But it also may be the outcome of a very rare probability. Maybe it was a 1 in 500 decision and you happened to play it when it "hit" the 1 in 500 probability action.

Is John Duthie the voice of the phrase "internet poker" in the IPWOF intro?
