We found out just how much an AI knows about poker…

Even the poker world is talking about the new trend of AI-generated art, self-portraits, and chats, so we at PokerNews had to see what ChatGPT knows about poker.

For those who don’t know, ChatGPT is a language model that uses Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF) to talk with people in a natural way. Here are some edited highlights from the conversations PokerNews had with ChatGPT.

So let’s see what this AI knows about poker and if it has any tips for PokerNews readers. Note: Everything in italics is taken directly from ChatGPT, with only minor changes made for clarity and length.

What are your thoughts on poker?
A good place to start would be to ask what the AI thinks about the game we all love.

ChatGPT said, “I think poker is a fun and exciting game that people of any skill level can enjoy.” “It’s a great way to test your ability to think strategically and make good decisions. It can also be a fun way to spend time with friends.

“Poker can be played in many different ways, so there is always something new to learn and try.”

Live poker or online poker? Which do you think is better?
The age-old question: Would you rather feel the cards in your hands and hear the chips being shuffled, or play multiple tables from the comfort of your own home? We asked ChatGPT for the answer, but they said there wasn’t a clear answer because both live poker and online poker have their own advantages and disadvantages.

“Live poker lets players talk to each other in person, which can make the game more social.

“On the other hand, players can play online poker from anywhere with an internet connection, which can be more convenient.

How do you get better at poker?
PokerNews has a lot of articles about poker strategy that can help you get better at the game. ChatGPT also has its own ideas about how to get better at poker.

“You can get better at poker by practicing and playing as much as you can. This will let you try out different strategies and see how they work in real games.

“Another way to get better is to watch and learn from people who are already good. You can do this by reading books or articles about poker strategy, watching videos with instructions, or joining a poker forum or community where you can talk with other players about the game.

“Also, it’s important to keep your mind on the game and keep a good attitude while playing. This can help you make better choices and avoid making mistakes that will cost you a lot of money.”

Do you think that anyone can get paid to play poker?
The path to becoming a professional poker player is long and difficult, and ChatGPT agrees that anyone can reach this goal, but it’s not an easy one.

“To play poker professionally, you need skill, hard work, and a little luck. It’s important to know the rules and strategies of the game inside and out and to be able to make decisions quickly and correctly.

“Professional poker players also need to know how to handle the ups and downs of the game and how to take care of their bankroll.

“In addition to these skills, it’s important to be able to keep a positive attitude and keep your mind on the task at hand during long, hard sessions. Becoming a professional poker player is hard, but it could be worth it in the end.”

Is there anything that can be done to stop people from using poker bots and RTA?
We decided to utilize this chance to inquire about the robot’s feelings toward other robots.

The employment of poker bots and other forms of real-time assistance (RTA) has sparked heated discussion among players. There are others who believe these aids should be outlawed to prevent them from tainting the game by providing an unfair advantage to those who use them. However, there are many who believe that the ability to utilize such aids constitutes a type of talent and that those who do so should be afforded the same opportunities as everyone else in the game. There is no clear solution to this subject, and the laws and regulations surrounding the use of bots and RTA in poker may vary depending on the organization or venue.

“In the end, it is up to individual players and the organizations hosting the games to decide how to use these technologies in poker.”

Questions in a Flash
In addition to the ones already mentioned, we couldn’t resist asking ChatGPT to settle the score on a few more well-known poker questions:

In the annals of poker, who has the title of all-time great?

The finest poker player in history is likely to be a matter of opinion, since there are numerous variables to take into account.

“Johnny Moss, Johnny Chan, Stu Ungar, and Phil Ivey are among the best poker players of all time.”

Is Pot Limit Omaha truly “The Great Game?”

Although Pot-Limit Omaha is a fun and thrilling poker variation, it is up to each player to determine whether or not they consider it the “great game.”

How about if it was the very first hand of the WSOP Main Event and you had pocket aces; would you call an all-in?

“Going all-in with pocket aces on the opening hand of a poker tournament is typically regarded to be terrible strategy, particularly in a high-stakes game like the World Series of Poker Main Event,” says poker expert and author Phil Ivey.
