re: Poker & Since when did poker Bots surpass humans?
Yeah , bots do exist , but there are very few and all of them are stupid (low-mid stakes ).
They play on freerolls/tournaments , cashgames . It was an incident in the past with the russian bots at the pot limit omaha high stakes on pokerstars (where some users were banned ) , some on WPN freerolls . This strange incident that cardchat news refers , imo it's not a bot .
So bots exist but it's not so common, it's rare , that the biggest poker rooms , like 888poker and pokerstars , partypoker
and ACR find these users , ban them and return funds (the scammers try opening new accounts but with no result ). The bots (that are very well programmed , very aggressive ) can be found on very high stakes , so it's nothing a reg player must concern about (there are some incidents on freerolls or low stakes cash games on ACR , but these bots are so stupid , easily are beaten , the only thing is not be afraid by their aggressiveness and you make money big time ) .
So I don't think they (BOTS) have surpassed human , cause we can find/spot them and ban them !!!
