Poker AI Wins $290K from Humans – Robotics Trends

For the second time in 2017, poker-playing artificial intelligence crushed human poker players. “Lengpudashi” or “cold poker master” beat five Chinese poker players in a “landslide” over 36,000 hands to win the $290,000 winner-take-all prize.

Lengpudashi is an upgraded version of Libratus, which was created at Carnegie Mellon University and in January 2017 won 1.7 million play chips against top poker pros. An earlier version of CMU’s poker-playing AI called Claudico lost to humans in 2015.

The human team that beat Claudico included Doug Polk, who is regarded by many as the top heads-up poker player in the world. Lengpudashi, on the other hand, beat a team that consisted of Yue Du, an amateur poker player, engineers, computer scientists and investors who attempted to use game theory and machine intelligence to beat Lengpudashi.

We’ve long been fascinated with the idea of computers beating humans at games.
