I usually train with poker academy and I am wondering how goods are the pokerbots there. What is the truth about them ? How good are they in playing poker ?
It's totaly about artificial intelligence issue. They read the poker table window as an image, and each part of the table with information specific to the hand is analyzed and recorded for computation. No matter how they were written well, no matter how they created in a good intteligence, no bots can be successful as such as a person. Because poker is not only a card game.
The truth about them, they play in in poker rooms more than you think. But today's technology prevents a lot of them. "I believe that poker sites should allow bots, but only on clearly defined tables. Players should know who the bots are, and have the choice if they would like to play them or not," says Barry Greenstein.
Giving an answer to this question is subjective but they are playing good. In the summer 2005, the online poker room Golden Palace hosted a promotional tournament in Las Vegas, at the old Binions, with a $100k giveaway prize. It was billed as the 2005 World Series of Poker Robots. The tournament was bots only with no entry fee. The bot developers were computer scientists from six nationalities who traveled at their own expense. The host platform was Poker Academy. The event also featured a demonstration headsup event with Phil Laak.
