Humans Best A.i. Poker Program

After two weeks and 80,000 hands, four professional players emerge triumphant

Four professional poker players, Dong Kim, Jason Les, Bjorn Li and Doug Polk, proved this week that they can beat the latest AI-equipped computer program, Claudico, over 80,000 hands of poker.
The four won $100,000 after besting the Carnegie Mellon University program in a series of heads up No Limit Hold'em encounters, playing under carefully controlled and monitored conditions from a US land casino (see previous InfoPowa reports).
The competitive experiment ended today (Friday).
On an individual overall basis, just one pro, Jason Les, failed to beat the program, although the differences in chip stacks between humans and machine toward the end of the experiment were reportedly not that big, leaving room for the self-learning AI to further develop.
The four pros finished up $732,713 in play money; Bjorn Li achieved the best result with $529,033; Doug Polk followed on $213,671 and Dong Kim completed his contribution and finished up $70,491. Jason Les was the only pro to fail, ending play down $80,482.
