Re: Computers Conquer Texas Hold'em Poker for First Time

Bloomberg article: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2015-0...ong-moves.html

“We have a strategy that can guarantee a player won’t lose,” said Michael Bowling, a computer scientist from the University of Alberta, who led a team working on the program. “It’s going to be a break-even game. It’s only when someone makes a mistake that they could end up losing.”

In other words: they claim GTO


edit: It seems like they brute forced the solution, right? Just ran enough sims to the point where every random hand and random decision point had been up against every other random hand and decision point and from there on narrowed it down to the strategy with the most over-all +EV choice in every spot?
