The no-limit Texas Hold'em results were presented today at the AAAI Workshop on Computer Poker and Imperfect Information games. They are now available online here.
Congratulations to Carnegie Mellon University for winning the total bankroll competition with Baby Tartanian8 and to Eric Jackson for winning the instant runoff competition with the latest incarnation of Slumbot.
The raw log files will be available towards the end of next week.
A quick update on the upcoming competition:
First off, this year we will *not* hold the two-player limit Hold'em or the three-player limit Hold'em events this year as there are not enough competitors interested in these two events. It is likely that the three-player event will be replaced by a multiplayer no-limit variant in future years. Two-player limit Hold'em may be reinstated in the future provided there is enough interest and the appropriate alterations are made so that it is scientifically viable.
Second, the two-player no-limit Hold'em hardware requirements have been determined. We will be increasing the storage limit to 200 GB. Additionally, we will be using newer Amazon EC2 instances this year. Competitors will be allowed to choose between the m3.medium and m3.large instance types.
