How an AI took down four world-class poker pros

#artificialintelligence

The four of them had spent the last 20 days playing 120,000 hands of heads-up, no-limit Texas Hold'em against an artificial intelligence called Libratus created by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University. A similar scene had unfolded two years prior when Les, Kim and two other players decisively laid the smackdown on another AI called Claudico. The players hoped to put on a repeat performance, finish up the event January 30th, and ride the rush of endorphins until they got home and resumed their usual games of online poker. The fight wasn't even close. All told, Libratus won by more than 1.7 million (virtual) dollars, and -- just like that -- the second Brains vs. AI competition came to a close.

Survey finds California voters opposed to legalizing Internet poker

Los Angeles Times

A survey Monday commissioned by several Native American tribes with concerns about legalizing Internet poker in California found a majority of California's likely voters oppose the idea. Before hearing any arguments for or against, the survey found that 52 percent of likely voters oppose allowing online poker games, which are proposed by a poker legalization bill by Assemblyman Adam Gray (D-Merced). When those surveyed were told Internet poker is illegal in the state but thousands of people still play it without consumer protection, 41% supported legalization and 51% opposed. Some 74% of voters agreed that foreign websites that violated federal law by accepting U.S. users should be disqualified from getting a license in California. The statewide telephone survey was conducted by the firm Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates on behalf of several tribes with opposition to legalizing Internet poker, including the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, the Barona Band of Mission Indians and the Lytton Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians.

Also, the two talk about how Daniel's definition of success has changed over the years (32:00), what he's interested in outside the poker table (45:00), and how the Rocky movies help get him ready to make a run at the WSOP Final Table every year (54:00).
