Poker Challenge: New 6-Max Poker AI App Claims to be Undefeated
A new free poker app for Android knows how to get downloads: tell players the app's hardest level remains undefeated. PokerAlfie is a six-max game against artificial intelligence (AI) that just launched for Android in the Google Play Store. Will players find this challenge tempting enough to take on PokerAlfie?
Setting Up Skill Level
According to the press release, several players including Serbian poker pro Srdjan Pavlovic Nislija have tested their skills against the app. So far not a single one has been able to win against PokerAlfie over a game sample of 5,000 hands in the game's most challenging “Optimal” setting.
The app is designed by Giltech e.K., a tech company with a focus on developing AI algorithms. Giltech e.K. CEO Aleksander Gilezan set out bait for poker players, saying he is “still waiting” for a poker player to come beat his new app.
Free and Small
The app is an offline game that is optimized for mobile phones. It is free, does not require wifi or internet to play, and according to the press release, commercial-free as well. System requirements are humble at 4-core CPU, 35MG of storage, and a max memory usage of 117MB.
Based on its description, it sounds like the settings are designed to accommodate players of all skill levels. If nothing else it could be a fun way to learn six-max, but it looks like the Gilezan is searching for the pro that can break his new toy.
