Texas hold ’em is the most popular poker game on the planet with prize pools of up to $80m being won in a single tournament.
We are bringing the game to AI Gaming with somewhat more modest stakes - but no less competition!
Your bot will play the game of Texas hold 'em no limit poker.
Each player chooses which game style they wish to play in - the starting stack size and maximum number of deals in a game. When two players have requested the same game style, they are matched by the server and a game begins.
Each player receives the same number of chips, a dealer is chosen at random, and the non-dealer gets one bonus chip. The blinds are fixed at 10 and 20.
They then play no limit Texas hold 'em for the number of deals specified in the game style, or until one of them is busted. No limit means you can bet up to your entire chip stack at any time.

Congratulations to everyone who took part. We had an excellent turnout but still had enough pizza for everyone!
It was fun to join up with Glasgow University GUTECHSOC to code Battleships Bots in our new Online Code Editor.
