They say it played trillions of hands against itself...u r speaking about spots not played optimally like when u put in analysis of a hand u played online.You will see insane moves if u do that.

PokerSnowie seems to show inconsistent hand ranges – why is that?
In some situations there may be an inconsistency between PokerSnowie's advice and the opponent's hand range. For example, PokerSnowie advises to call a bet on the river, while the opponent's hand range doesn't offer the right odds to call. How can there be such an inconsistency?

First of all it has to be noted, that the evaluation (the move advice) is NOT based on the hand range of the opponent. The evaluation is the output of a neural network and has evolved during training. The neural network has been trained over trillions of hands, against various counter-strategies. Therefore these evaluations are very robust and can be trusted most.

The hand range, however, is a calculation based on the evaluations of the same neural network. All legal hole cards are considered and the evaluations are used to decide which hole cards PokerSnowie would possibly hold in a certain situation.

As a consequence, the evaluation may be different than a conclusion based on the hand range of the opponent.

This, unfortunately, cannot be avoided; the problem would only vanish if the neural net was a perfect calculation of the game (and not an estimation based on pattern recognition).

The hand range can be very sensitive to small changes in a previous round. Two very similar situations on the flop may lead to quite different hand ranges on the river, if a group of hands falls out of the range due to a small EV difference on the flop. Similarly, two slightly different neural nets that play almost identically may have significantly different hand ranges.

Therefore:

the right action cannot be concluded from the opponent's hand range
the evaluations are robust whereas the hand range is sensitive
the hand range should only be used as an indication of which hands are possible holdings

It is what I said...It plays against it's own ranges(neural network solutions over trillions of trials) NOT against opponent's range.Snowbot started to learn the game randomly.By countering strategies it means his own moves bot vs bot.When u sit in a training mode in a 6 max u sit against 5 Snowie bots.So u play against 5 of the best players in the world.If u leave 5 bots will play against each other and eventually they will reach a point when they can't exploit each other.If there was not a rake factor probably Snowie could solve the game somewhere in time in a zero sum environment.

No ,when u import hands from HM2 or PT4 database. I say that the best way to learn with Snowie is to use scenarios and training mode.And it is easier if you have full subscription. Otherwise u will be in the dark.

I think it's about training mode but never mind.When i learn through scenarios i learn without particular combos choosing. I pick only board cards and analyse Snowie moves range vs range.

No, you're not missing anything. Snowie has lots of quirks like that, and I think it's because of the way that the artificial neural networks learned the game. Snowie sometimes produces "weird" results, particularly in multiway pots where it hasn't 'experienced' the spot enough times to get anywhere close to a true equilibrium.

As Zuko pointed out, it will sometimes say to call with XX hand (because Snowie thinks it at least breaks even), even though it would lose 100% of the time vs Snowie's own (unbalanced) strategy. The opposite is also true. I used to play pots with it where it would fold 99.4% of its range, even though it would bluff in the same situation if the roles were reversed.

A bit like humans, Snowie's much better at playing on the early streets, due to having more experience of those.

Re: Pokersnowie question

The trick is in the hand strength button...i have checked and 99 there is considered weak with 0.52 showdown strenght which means it has 26% equity against opponent's range(Snowie formula is dividing 0.52 by 2 to get equity number).Betting strength is different because is matched against opponent's non folding range.

Re: Pokersnowie question

Thanks. pretty interesting how this thing works. Seems relatively easy to figure out what is going on preflop. It's much more difficult to figure out what the hell snowie is thinking on later streets.

i wonder if it over defends in certain spots to counter balance the spots it is under defending.

Re: Pokersnowie question

Hi, has anyone used the freeze out training option in pokersnowie? How good are the suggestions made by it? As I understand, it's restricted because it only chooses one size so it can't properly evaluate a strategy that plays push/fold with some hands, and min raises with others.
