Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 19, 2006 -–
Poker Academy, the leading poker training software developer, today announced that the company supplied the foundation for the poker playing artificial intelligence inside Myelin Media’s award-winning game “STACKED with Daniel Negreanu.” Poker Academy’s AI is world renowned and was developed over more than 10 years in association with researchers at the University of Alberta, Canada, which has published many academic papers on the subject.
Poker Academy supplied two forms of artificial intelligence to STACKED: a bot for limit Texas Hold’em called “Poki” and a no-limit Texas Hold’em bot called “Zen.” The Poki and Zen bots play poker drawing on a vast knowledge of each Texas Hold’em poker game respectively and use extensive poker mathematics as a foundation for their decisions. Both bots also have the ability to read cards and put opponents on hands as well as the ability to model the actions of their opponents and predict future responses.
Using this break-through foundation, Myelin was able to create variations on each of these bots to create multiple hold’em experiences. While some of the AI crosses genres, quite a bit of it is specifically fine-tuned for each game.

Poker Academy provided STACKED with the most popular AI components found in its flagship Texas Hold’em poker training software, Poker Academy Pro, designed for serious rounders. Inside Poker Academy Pro is additional tools and artificial intelligence:
