Daily 3-Bet: Rand Paul + Bilzerian, Brains v. AI, Dnegs Jilted

Just your average meet-up on campaign trail.

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a couple hundos, a web-savvy Senator and another average photo op on the afternoon poker news campaign trail.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop us a note in the comments and we'll take a look.

Today in the 3-Bet we find an odd pairing on the campaign trail, some heads-up No-Limit kings take on a computer and DNegs tells his Millionaire Matchmaker story.

1) Paul Snapchats Bilzerian

They say politics makes strange bedfellows but Senator/Presidential candidate Rand Paul snapchatting a game of $100-bill Liar's Poker with Dan Bilzerian?

Meh. Could be weirder. Could be George Bush dancing for Malaria.

2) Polk, Kim, Les and Li Take on Claudico AI

We've seen this "man vs. computer" poker challenge play out before, but never has it been this interesting.

Doug Polk: Fears no man or machine heads-up.

Four of poker's best heads-up No-Limit Hold'em players - Doug Polk, Dong Kim, Jason Les and Bjorn Li - have each begun a 20k hands challenge against the most advanced NLHE AI ever created.

Developed by Computer Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University the AI - dubbed "Claudico" - is an advanced version of the Tartanian7 program which won the HU NLHE challenge at the Computer Poker Competition last summer.

Players will be paired in duplicate matches — Player A will get the same cards the computer receives against Player B and vice versa.

Likewise for Players C and D. Two 750-hand sessions will be played per day for 13 days with one day of rest mixed in.

Action is at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh and is being streamed live right here. More information on the program and the challenge here. After 800 hands so far, Claudico is up about $6k.
