  • Attack of the Poker Bots

    Posted by Shannon Love on September 21st, 2004 (All posts by )

    Online poker players are concerned that sophisticated programs (called bots in computer lingo) will win poker games on online gambling sites. They fear the bots will systemically defeat the human players and rake in all the money.

    Of course, the ultimate evolution will be bots playing bots. Then humans can go do productive work while the bots take care of our critical gambling needs.

      Maybe if we get the bots to play each other they will stop leaving spam in our blog comments.

      Funny. I wonder who’s to stop the black jack card counting bots? Wouldn’t be hard to write. I could probably even put one together on Excel based on formulas. Look out sites here I come…

      How well will that card counting bot work if the house is playing with 10,000 decks or so?

    4. incognito Says:

      ah, good point ken. Didn’t know how the format of play is in online casinos. too bad

    5. Ken Says:

      I don’t either, but there’s nothing stopping them from adjusting in response to online shenanigans in much the same way that brick-and-moartar casinos adjust to card-counters that appear in the flesh.
