Tartanian7 may not be quite the pushover though—in last year’s Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) poker competition, Tartanian7 took the honors as the top poker bot competiting against the best that other academic specialists in game theory could develop.

From the picture of the two top cash game players above, it’s not impossible that alcohol could have played a part in their latest scheme to show off their prowess. Man against machine at NLHE is a still a no-brainer for man—but two men and two crates of beer against the machine could be a bit iffy.
