We are professional poker players currently battling the world's strongest poker AI live on Twitch in an epic man-machine competition (The AI is winning). Ask us, or the developers, anything!
Hello Reddit! We are Jason Les and Dong Kim, part of a 4-person team of top professional poker players battling Libratus, an AI developed by PhD student Noam Brown and Professor Tuomas Sandholm at Carnegie Mellon University. We are among the best in the world at the form of poker we're playing the bot in: Head's Up No-Limit Texas Hold'em. Together, we will play 120,000 hands of poker against the bot at the Rivers Casino, and it is all being streamed live on Twitch.
Noam and Dr. Sandholm are happy to answer some questions too, but they can't reveal all the details of the bot until after the competition is over.
