No time to really talk about this right now, but it's cool and neat:
Phil Laak and Ali Eslami are taking on the newest and meanest poker computerbot today in a nifty 'duplicate match' (double blind?) --- the same cards will be dealt simultaneously in the Laak-Bot match *and* the Eslami-bot match (which takes place in a seperate room), but the bot will have the opposite hand against Eslami. Assuming it doesn't just use that info to know what each person has, sounds like a very reasonable way to compare skills. Follow the action live from the link above. Also, its awesome that Laak wears sunglasses when playing against the computer.
