Computational complexity References
Tuomas Sandholm, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon: “Poker is now a benchmark for
artificial intelligence research, just as chess once was” Two-player no-limit Hold’em, Sandholm said, has
10^161 situations, or information sets, that a player may face —vastly more than all of the atoms in the
universe. By contrast, the easier game of limit Hold’em, in which bets and raises are limited to a pre-
determined amount, has only 10^13 information sets.
Heads-up limit hold’em poker is solved by Michael Bowling, Neil Burch, Michael Johanson, Oskari Tammelin:
“the game (heads-up limit Texas hold’em poker) has 3.19 × 10^14 decision points where a player is required
to make a decision” http://science.sciencemag.org/content/347/6218/145.full

decisions. 3. There is no pre saved data except some probability data for Preflop and Flop. Also those data
can be generated on the fly for about 0.3 second per stage. 4. PokerAlfie does not analyze opponents
decision-history and does not adapt his play to opponents play style.
