Inside PokerSnowie's brain
You are out of position with a medium hand. There is a good chance that you are holding the best hand, but your hand is vulnerable to over cards. Clearly, this is a situation where you don't want to bet big. The old and the new AI agree that for the bet sizes 50%, 100% and 200% pot, the best strategy is to check.
The new AI has trained many months more than the old one, and this fact alone should lead to a stronger and more consistent strategy. The main difference, however, is the introduction of a new bet size: 25% pot.
In Part I of this article we examined how member feedback and PokerSnowie's learning algorithm was able to identify several sources of recurring weakness and address these, resulting in a major update to the core AI brain. Here are more examples of the recent improvements.
Today PokerSnowie is pleased to announce that a significant update to the core AI has been released, taking PokerSnowie's No Limit Hold’em ability to the next level. In this article PokerSnowie reveals how the AI has improved in several specific areas, gaining much more experience and resulting in more consistent advice across many different scenarios.
This article explores how to construct a betting range that is well balanced between value hands and bluffs, and shows how PokerSnowie compares to the theory.

This week's article aims to start answering a question you have asked us often - what is the best way to learn with PokerSnowie and PokerCoach?.
