Poker engine

I'm not sure if there can be exactly a "poker engine" like Fritz is a chess engine, able to play any situation... I know that there is poker engines for certain poker rooms but in order to play here you may only find sites that offer to calculate the odds for each hand, but it won't take in account the coins & points you have, which are very important also, so I'm afraid it does not exist :)

Poker engine

I've played poker against a computer before (several computer opponents). I think the program I used was called 'Tik's Texas Hold'em', but I've no idea what the best poker program is. I seem to remember reading something in either a poker magazine or a poker website a while ago about a match between top pros and top programs, and I don't think it was a one-sided encounter.

No engine?

Indeed why would it be so hard to make one? You choose how many players first. (1 vs 1 here). Then you choose how much chips. And then you choose what card you get. It chould not be hard for a programer.

[William] Yes, I think I've read also an article on a computer beating a pro player in heads up. Maybe the chancy factor ?

[Benjamin] I think it is possible, maybe easy, to code an engine to play here, but maybe it's not so easy to code a good engine able to play well in a 3 winning rounds match. Dunno...
