Since when did poker Bots have surpassed humans?
If a Bot can play at that level and win then I want to see that Bot please.
Poker Bots have surpassed humans are as follows:
- They are not susceptible to emotions
- They do not get tired.
Function "make a deal button" was not exactly spelled out in the program.
And Poker Bot responded to the actions of an opponent the same actions.
This is one of the options.
Perhaps the player with tension just nerves weak or sick heart. Therefore, the connection was lost.
Also as an option.
Yeah, this is not really surprising. It really sucks, but I am not surprised at all. Like Oleg said, they have no emotions and they can run 24/7/365. It's bad for online poker. Sites are really gonna have to figure out away to try and stop it.
A blade of grass, a grain of sand, the moonlit sea, I'll hold your hand, I want it all
First Bots do exist, I get plenty of junk emails asking me to buy one. A bot is only as good as the person who programs it, but I'm sure there's some good ones out there that could take down a tournament. I know they can also be programmed to make the occasional chat, nh, gg, that sort of thing. I'm not so sure about responding to a deal, but anything could be programmed. Has anyone considered that in case the user was Russian and may not have understood the inquiries?
Hope this doesn't derail the original intent of the post but if high quality bots do exist. Who is to say that these poker sites themselves are not using bots to funnel money out of the hands of real uses and into their hands. There has obviously been issues with corruption of some sites in the past and this would be one easy way for them to increase revenue.
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 !!!
NLHM is complex enough that a "perfect" strategy has not yet been developed. It wasn't until the late nineties that software could consistently beat a strong chess player. Now, computer software can beat the best Grand Masters. But chess is a game of "complete information", unlike poker. There are effectively an infinite number of variables, situations, and different playing styles. NLHM software (like PokerSnowie) can play at a reasonably high level, but a good player good could start to beat it after playing it enough and adjusting enough. Eventually, a "heuristic program", i.e., a program that learns, will be developed. I wouldn't worry about it though as there will always be plenty of humans out there to exploit....
Same was for chess, but now there are some that can beat the best chess players in the world. It won't be long till very good bots will be accessible enough to program (opensource codes and so on ) and implement in games like poker.
Core modules for the bot: getting Information - receive information from the client, which is necessary for decision-making; includes - our cards, opponents bets, stack sizes, providing a long bread, etc. Decisions -.. algorithm for deciding whether action bot quite logical tasks and separate subject, so we will consider it in the next article in this series. User Action Simulation - simulation of a user clicking buttons, imitation mouse movements. Maybe soon the entire online poker world will be bots and auction on the stock exchange. Despite the claims of the Roma, the bots of benefit to them. Favorable, because they are many and often put, but simply and earn a rail rooms.
Here is a good link to follow up with. Bots exist, punto. And they have weaknesses. As long as you have the patience (and a decent bankroll) it will be a 50/50 game so at the very least you will earn some points.
