Thanks, Bob, for that detailed and incredibly useful response.

For the first time since the onset of the boom, a large number of players were competing in an environment where heads-up play was readily available. Cepheus is the culmination of von Neumann's vision and those advancements. A perfect solution to the game is a strategy that is guaranteed to not lose money in the long run.

You are correct to be skeptical. i did a guest account and played 100 hands.

I am curious also. Again I'm thinking it should 4 bet with mostly the top end and some of its lower end, and just call 3bet mostly with the lower end and occasionally with the top end. The team was led by Dr. Michael Bowling and included Neil Burch, Michael Johanson, and Oskari Tammelin.
My life isn't such that I can make it to casino very often, but I do have a lot of 15-30 minute windows during the week when I have dead time. Discussions should focus on the underlying concepts and theoretical aspects of the game. I was interested and thought it could be possible to GTO solve hu limit holdem..... maybe. The program was trained for two months using more than four thousand CPUs each considering over six billion hands every second! Also I played 400 hands and I can confirm it never 4 bet one of them. He saw computers as the way to make his mathematics of real-life decision-making workable even if full-scale poker was still "much too complicated". You also agree to our Terms of Service. Zumindest hat ein Push einen höheren Erwartungswert, als ein Fold. • Cepheus is a Game Theory Optimal (GTO) solution to Heads-up Limit Holdem. After that the game tree get so big that what you looking at the riv probably won't matter as much unless you making some really bad fold or bluff. And it might have raised on an earlier street randomly according to the program. I believe that sort of attitude is frowned upon on 2p2. Believe me, I wish the tables were 4-6 handed all the time as I feel more comfortable that way. Darüber hinaus bieten GTO-Strategien eine hilfreiche Orientierung für Otto-Normal-Spieler. Yes 30: 56.60%: No 23: 43.40%: Voters: 53. So far I can only see strategy from the BB perspective but I am sure you can "change view". Of course you'd need to randomize those hand on earlier streets for deception, but on the end when theres only 1 more bet to call I think Cepheus would be better off calling with the same overall frequency but with the higher end of cards.

While Cepheus does not play perfectly, it is so close to perfect that even after playing an entire lifetime of poker against it — over 60 million hands — it is impossible to tell the difference. If you could actually beat it by more than the precision to which the game was solved it only means there was a bug in the programming.
Cepheus can help bridge that gap and provide the profits that Amaya so desperately desires.” Borezall pointed out that Cepheus settles the argument of “luck vs. skill.” “We all know that poker is a skill game and Cepheus is the epitome of skillful play. Poker is the antithesis of perfect information where the one most relevant piece of information, the other players' cards, is exactly what is not known. Cepheus (SEE-fee-us) is the first computer program to play an essentially perfect game of poker. Der Cepheus-Bot ist dank dank ausgeklügelter GTO-Strategien die erste Maschine, die beim Limit-Hold’em unschlagbar ist. Cookies help us deliver our Services. Allerdings können wir wesentlich besser abschneiden, indem wir einfach immer Stein spielen. Zunächst zur Begriffsklärung: GTO ist die Abkürzung für Game Theory Optimal – oder auf deutsch: optimal nach Spieltheorie. I feel like my fundamental approach and balance on the flop and turn have both improved a lot. Just as games of chance were a driving force behind Pascal and Fermat's development of the field of probability, poker was a driving force behind von Neumann's development of the field of game theory.

I was hoping some more people would play Cepheus and post their results here instead of just doing what everyone else did, accept their conclusion without evidence.
