Poker Academy boasts a tremendously active and vocal forum community. Our
online poker forums provide an interactive environment where users discuss poker,
software problems, bot configurations, and how they utilize Poker Academy products to improve their games.
Man vs Machine Poker Champioships
Each year the latest headsup specialist bot out of the University of Alberta Poker Research Group, Polaris, takes on Poker Pros to determine if machine has surpassed man!
If you are a programmer, you can program your own computer opponent using the Meerkat API,
plug it into Poker Academy, and see how it does against yourself and the other AIs. If you
aren’t a programmer, don’t worry. Our website will link to additional freely
available computer opponents as they become available.
The download contains the meerkat-api.jar file to compile against, the API documentation,
a sample bot, and brief instructions. The compiled bot can just be dropped into a
special subfolder of Poker Academy.
If you have any questions or problems, or have developed a bot and wish to showcase it,
please contact us at the Meerkat API section in the forum.
