AAAI to hold Texas Holdem competition for computers

April 30th, 2006

AAAI is sponsoring a heads up, limit Texas Holdem competition (for computers, of course) to be held at the 21st National Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Boston 16-20 July 2006. Participants are not required to attend or register for the conference. The grand prize? “The joy of victory and the envy of the community.” See the AAAI Computer Poker Competition website for rules, a discussion forum, documentation, Java code for the game server, and Java source code for two example bots.
