Alon:
That's actual not true.
It is FAR more likely the director took out a new pack of cards and forgot to shuffle or didn't run through deal master.
I've had it happen to me.

Nice analysis, however predictive analytics only works when out of sample data is not dissimilar to in sample data. Just saying there would have been some serious fireworks with going on in the fourth quarter.

Why on earth do you think the casino didn't know exactly what Ivey and Sun were doing?
If Ivey loses, the casino keeps their loses.
If Ivey wins, they don't pay him and sue him for cheating.
It's a freeroll.

Listen to the podcast episode I posted. Kelly Sun is a known baccarat pro. The casino knew exactly what they were getting too and basically let Ivey freeroll them.

The “Gambling With an Edge” Podcast had a great interview with Kelly a couple months ago. Very much worth listening too.

Does GIB wash its hands after visiting the bathroom and before returning to the virtual table?

I would be interested in reading criticism about their research. I watched some of their streams (on Twitch) and spoke to them (over Twitch chat). If I understand correctly, their AI publications tend to be “conference” focused and not journal focused. I'm not familiar with how peer review comes in here.

Deepstack from U Albert beat Heads-up NL by finding a game theoretic solution.
Multi-player is much, much harder. What will be the approach as Kit pointed to?

One disappointment.
I asked BBO and they are not publishing real names in the daily results. The fun of this tournament is seeing how everyone did. If you don't know everyone's BBO nick, you are out of luck. :(

Why are the accepting USD at all? The event is in Canada.
There are plenty of places to change money in Toronto.
Simple problem, simple solution.

Minor correction to David's comment. A full robot award of .90 points needs 15 humans.

BBO always goes by EST, they usually make that clear. Weird that they didn't here.
FWIW, I entered at 11:40 PM EST and the final day one results were in pretty soon after I finished.

“The issue is less about field size than board count.”
This is a true statement.
However, each board is played ~50 times in the 25 cent dailies. A 100% game has never happened.

The exaggerations about the rewards of non-standard operating are getting ridiculous.
