The AI system, named Pluribus, played over 10,000 hands over the course of 12 days. In one situation, it played alongside five human players and in another, it played along five additional AI players. The bot won, on average, five dollars per hand with hourly winnings of about $1000, which researchers called a "decisive margin of victory".
Noam Brown, a research scientist at Facebook AI Research said:
"It's safe to say we're at a superhuman level and that's not going to change."
Chris Ferguson, a six-time World Series of Poker champion said: "Pluribus is a very hard opponent to play against. It's really hard to pin him down on any kind of hand."
