Results

The results of the 11th Annual Computer Poker Competition are presented below. This year, there were three events in two games. Heads-up no-limit Texas Hold'em had an event using the total-bankroll winner determination rule to encourage learning techniques, as well as an instant run-off event that encourages defensive play, as in traditional game-theoretic techniques.

For the first time this year we also had an event in six-player no-limit Texas hold'em. There were nine submissions, but three were from Harbin Institute of Technology and two were from South-East University. To mitigate the potential problem of implicit collusion, only one agent from each university was allowed to advance to the "final table" of six agents, at which point total-bankroll was used to determine the ordering of agents.
