Notably the world is constantly evolving, technology is increasingly advanced. Man's yearning to create the human-like machine is growing ever closer to reality. As I see it, although it can evolve along with the machine, it can turn around and destroy everything around it. I do not believe that small lines of code in the programming of these robots will be holding that there will be a machine revolt against humanity. But leaving a bit of fiction in poker, I see no need to create something like that, as there is money involved, so the man's greed will infect the cause using the proper eriquement program soon made the online hamburger unfit for competition, extending the game online.

And you, what do you think can end online poker?

online poker hangs on a thin line because of bots, HUDs etc.
There are too many technological innovations putting into a poker online.
VR at PS is quite cool and i like this idea, but i dont have sure about that im playing at the moment with bots i dont belive in 0101000101 system :)

Artificial intelligence that can tap into our thoughts. It may be a long way off or it may exist now and you'd never know it.

I think that if the rooms want, they will be able to fight the bots. If it is someone else's bots, not the bots of the room itself.

I was 1 year without playing poker online and still very strong. It is very difficult to end online poker, since for many it is a comfort to play from your room. I think we will have online poker for a while

Online poker will end if any new technologies are introduced into our lives. Virtual reality is acceptable. I put on my virtual reality glasses and head to the casino.

I dont think, online poker will die anytime soon, but the high stakes scene has already been slowly dying for the last decade. This is because, games are getting solved, so edges between good players have become slim to non existent. It also does not help, that rich recreational players from several countries are not allowed to play by their government.

Hi, I hope that online poker will never die but without a doubt the biggest enemy he has right now are the bots but I'm glad to see how many poker rooms are taking action against them, in poker as in everything that involves money will always see people who try to take advantage of cheating I think that between us players and poker rooms we must be constantly fighting against them to get these people out of online poker that way we will ensure that online poker never dies

i think that the only thing that can end online poker nowadays would be a law prohibiting online gambling in any way

Online viruses could wreak some havoc. Other than that the only threat to online poker are humans, themselves. Greed and trolling seem to have a way of doing some damage.

If there is a big cheating or corruption scandal there will be a huge negative impact. Also, major criminal charges and laws for playing online could certainly derail poker online.

I see a possibility where as technology gets more advanced, intuitive softwares could be very well used to cheat at poker (AI)

Maybe someday the poker rooms will create very unfavorable conditions for the game, for example, rake will increase greatly. It is also possible that special bots will be created belonging to poker rooms that will be considered part of the software, it’s possible that someday they will be embedded in the customer base and start playing at the tables next to other users. All this will create an extremely bad atmosphere for the game and online poker will cease to exist.

And you, what do you think can end online poker?

Online poker as it is right now can be easily destroyed by a better version.
Today the single player who actually wins is the casino or poker site. It robs all players with rake.
PC server sees no difference between hosting 10000 player freeroll or 10K player $1.1MTT or 10K player $109 buy-in MTT. In all 3 cases Computer will consumer less than 1 dollar of traffic and energy. But owner of the server will receive different profit in all 3 cases.

SO

A new type of online poekr room may destroy current online poker.
What type of poker room is that? It's the one where you pay 1-5 dollars per month for membership and play any tourney with no rake. Such poker room can also have open source RNG algorythm, unlike current poker rooms who have their RNG algorythms hidden like sop top secrets... Such poker room can also be registered in some real country, not at ofshore islands, where noone can check what's going on inside this room, do they have their own bots and how do they work with players.

THEN

What will top poker regs will do, together with all usual players? Will they migrate to this new type poker site?
Poker Pro might have a look at his stats for past 5 or 10 years... He has $1.5mil profit, but he also paid $2.5 mil. rake to the pokerstars during 10 years. This might continue during next10 years, and he will see the same picture in year 2029. What will it mean for him? That he has lost addiitional 2.5 millions of profit. In case of new poker room, he will be paying $5 per month = 60 per year = $600 per 10 years. Simply compare $600 rake per 10 years and $6K or more and there you go. PokerStars, 888 and all others are dead. They had a nice 15 year long marathon of robbing poker community, maybe the time to stop this robbery has come?

Artificial intelligence that can tap into our thoughts. It may be a long way off or it may exist now and you'd never know it.

It exists for centuries. It's called ideology.
You may not even really understand why you're fan of some brand which really doesnt differ from the others much and doesn't really helps you to become rich/famous or successful, You may not understand why you're watching that TV series or movie that you like so much, but it actually burns your lifetime and provides you with fake info, teaching you nothing new, You may never understand why you don't like Russians, most probably you never met one, but still you don't like them because ideology in your part of the society is aimed to have an enemy. You may not understand that brave and shiny people who came with bombs, rockets and guns to another country are the real terrorists, but not those bearded scary looking opponents who defend their land, because your ideology calls them terrorists.

There are 2 main powers in this world. 1) Public opinion 2) Weapons. And You know... Guns won't fire if the one who holds the gun is not willing to shoot. That's why you have to control public opinion with ideology. And this is the sequence of base knowledge supported by media and public relations through the lifetime of each individual located under influence of one or another ideology.
Idology has flag, anthem, education, lifestyle as methods of control. Lets have a look at example of USA? Flag with stars... it reminds a rigle stock or a plane where pilot draws new star after hitting new opponent. New leader may want to add a new star to the flag.
What about anthem? Majority of countries are singing about their people, their beauty and glory... USA has bombs and rockets and foes in their anthem.

Ideology is the 4th out of 5 directions of the power. Usually people think that the power is separated in 3 directions. 1) Executive 2) Judicial 3) Legislative, and any university will teach you that it's so. 3 branches of power and nothing else, but it's a lie. There are 5 branches of power, and Ideology is one of the main directions. Ideology is not different from Artificial Intellegence that can tap and control our thoughts. You might become a billionaire and be one of the most educated persons in the world, but your idology wants you to be a consumer, wants you to be stupid, wants you to watch StarWars, IronMan, Game Of Thrones, SuperBowl and rest of the timewasting things that will ead you to the road of stupidity and consumation. And during this time, when ideology has your attention - it writes necessary code of conduct inside your brain. That makes those who fall for this trick a victim and a product of ideology.

How to fight against such and create your personal ideology? Just ask yoursefl a simple question before doing anything. "How this knowledge or action will improve my life?" What is better - to spend 40 hours for watching TV series that last 40 hours, or to spend 40 hours on 40hour long programming course and learn a programming language that will give you new options in your future? Life isn't a neverending process, spend it wise, cause 90-97% of information around us is someones bluff designed to create profit using fools who will fall for such bluff. Don't call me some conspiracy theory freak, cause I'm not one of them, i do know that conspiracy theories are not theories, they are reality and someones business, Santa Claus is a conspiracy theory, do you still believe in Santa or you're a grown up now? What about the rest of the world around you? Do you, the one who reads this, see signs of job well done by some con artists in 90% of things around you? Doesn;t matter if it's a object or a process...

Take care.
