Estimating the Probability of Winning for Texas Hold’em Poker Agents

  title={Estimating the Probability of Winning for Texas Hold’em Poker Agents},
  author={Lu{\'i}s Filipe Te{\'o}filo},
The development of an autonomous agent that plays Poker at human level is a very difficult task since the agent has to deal with problems like the existence of hidden information, deception and risk management. To solve these problems, Poker agents use opponent modeling to predict the opponents next move and thereby determine its next action. In this paper are described several methods to measure the risk of playing a certain hand in a given round of the game. First, we discuss the game of…

A simulation system to support computer poker research
The development of Poker agents is a meaningful domain for AI re- search because it addresses issues such as opponent modeling, risk management and decision-making under uncertain information. The
Approximating Poker Probabilities with Deep Learning
The learned model proves to be a lightweight alternative to Monte Carlo simulation, which ultimately allows us to use the probabilities as inputs during self-play efficiently.
Efficient storage, retrieval and analysis of poker hands: An adaptive data framework
This paper proposes a new, read-optimised storage model that offers significant data access improvements over traditional database systems as well as the existing Hadoop file formats such as ORC, RCFile or SequenceFile, and shows that multi-way partition pruning outperforms other existing file formats.


The challenge of poker
Opponent Modeling in Poker
Loki is described and evaluated, a poker program capable of observing its opponents, constructing opponent models and dynamically adapting its play to best exploit patterns in the opponents' play.
An Experimental Approach to Online Opponent Modeling in Texas Hold'em Poker
This paper is focused on developing algorithms for performing simple online opponent modeling in Texas Hold'em and the observer agent developed is clearly capable of outperforming all its counterparts in all the experiments performed.
Algorithms and assessment in computer poker
A major theme of this dissertation is the evolution of architectures for poker-playing programs that has occurred since the research began in 1992, and four distinct approaches are addressed: knowledge-based systems, simulation, game-theoretic methods, and adaptive imperfect information game-tree search.
The Monte Carlo Method
This chapter is aimed at describing the Monte Carlo method for the simulation of grain growth and recrystallization. It has also been extended to phase transformations and hybrid versions (Monte
