A poker showdown between professional players and an artificial intelligence program has ended with a slim victory for the humans. Although human players bested the AI software, the contest was close enough to be called a statistical tie. At the end of the event, combined winnings from the four humans were $732,713 over that of their digital opponent.

Four pros — Bjorn Li, Doug Polk, Dong Kim and Jason Les — settled down at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh to play a total of 80,000 hands of Heads-Up, No-Limit Texas Hold ’em with Claudico, a poker-playing bot made by Carnegie Mellon University computer science researchers.

This marked the first time that a computer program has played human professionals in a heads-up, no-limit poker game. The university has plans to update the supercomputer’s algorithms in the future. So we can expect to see anthor tournament like this as soon is possible.
