Hello everyone,

Like the rest of you, I was a poker player for quite some time and the allure of automation was always there. My interest is mostly in shortstack games and so far I've had very good results with my first bot. :D

I really like the idea of having an open-ish community where strategy ideas can be discusses & shared. Hoping to be able to contribute a bit to the livelyness of the site also :)

cheers

We could do with some action, even from troublemakers. :D Welcome

Hello,
as a Computer Engineer, I'm interested in Machine Learning and AI. I started playing Poker this year, so I don't have the experience needed to be a good (maybe neither average) player, but I hope to improve my skills.

I started thinking about an helper-bot. This means it reads the game state from the interface and runs its own algorithms but doesn't act, just shows the data and predicted best move in the screen; I then decide what to do, if following blindly the strategy or trying something different. This is mainly for security reasons and testing.
I'm writing right now the interface that reads all the game state from the table (position of the player, money, action etc. using OCR and computer vision). Seems to work quite well, but that is the easy part, the core will be tougher also because I'm not expert in the actual game so it's difficult to implement the strategies.

Cheers :D

Greetings! I've been lurking for quite some time and thought I would finally say hello. I'm fascinated with the idea of making a poker bot. It's lots of different problems to figure out across several disciplines and I love learning new things. At first I'm just working on a helper/adviser for nl holdem because it seems like the quickest way to being profitable.

I've already learned so much from these forums and I hope to be able to contribute at some point as well.

Hey everyone!

I have been playing poker on and off, but never got that great at it. I started my career as a Geophysicst, where the optimization methods were very similar to machine learning methods. I was since laid off, and went back to school for computer science. I have recently fallen back in love with poker, and I see a lot of application for using AI and data mining to improve strategies.

Long and the short of it I need to build a personal project to work in Machine Learning and I think building a simple, robust AI poker bot would be a great start.

Are there any fundamental, or core papers anyone would recommend I read first? I have a lot of experience using gradient based decent algos, like Gauss-Newton, but I am not sure if it is is applicable yet. I am such a noob I am not sure was is the standard practice :D

Thanks. It hurts a little bit given I did my MSc. in Geophysics at U of A, and didn't take the opportunity to get into this community.

Hi. i'm a newb at all things AI. I've played poker for years and I'm interested to learn more about how programming can be used to improve understanding of the game.

I'm coming back to this forum.

In early 2013 I was trying to make a Nash equilibrium calculator for Holdem and was stuck. I registered at pokerai.org and asked a question
http://poker-ai.org/archive/www.pokerai ... f=3&t=4814

spears helpfully gave me a link to a working external sampling implementation from amax. From there, I was able to make a working holdem flop solver. Since there were no public products available at that time, and high-stakes were still active, I was able to sell it (as a service) to a group of highest-stakes online players for $150k over 1.5 years. Since then, I was developing software for poker and made >1M dollars. Before that I was playing online poker professionally myself with mediocre results.

Thank you, spears. Not sure if I would have persistence to find a solution without your post and make a happy career in poker software field.

Is there a place on this forum to make a blog? I would like to tell some stories and ideas. I'm not going to share secrets that make big money in 2019, but there is plenty of older fun stuff. My goal is to connect to other poker AI professionals out there.

Another satisfied customer!

I'd love to read your stories and ideas. Just put them here in Miscellaneous.
