Between April 24 and May 8, four of poker's best high-stakes heads-up players took on poker bot Claudico (a computer program created by a team at Carnegie Mellon University) in 80,000 hands of heads-up no-limit Texas Hold'em (play money). The rules were very simple: whoever was up after 80k hands would be considered the winner.
The results came in the other day and showed that the human team won by $723,713. Here are the players and their winnings/losses:
Bjorn Li $529,033
Doug "WCGRider" Polk $213,671
Dong Kim $70,491
Jason Les -$80,482
Although the games were played with play money, the team of four will be rewarded with $100,000 in cash from Microsoft Research and the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh (where the competition took place). Highlights from the competition will be shown on future episodes of Poker Night in America (CBS Sports Network), but you can already now watch the sessions on Twitch TV.
