Man against machine

Phil Laak

The latest creation from the University of Alberta, the poker bot Polaris, is playing against Phil Laak and Ali Eslami in the first Man-Machine Poker Championship.

Yesterday they played the first two sessions with one draw and one win for Polaris! It will be exciting to see if the bot can continue with its relentless aggressive style for the last two sessions today or if Phil and Ali have figured out a counter strategy during the night.

Here you can follow the live updates.

Update: The humans won! See the results
