PokerSnowie well ahead of its challengers
Since the release of Challenge PokerSnowie in PokerCoach on Thursday 12th December, several thousand players have already tried their hand against the most advanced NL Hold’em artificial intelligence.
So we thought we would share how PokerSnowie has been doing against its human challengers.
We collected all the hands played in the first week since the release of Challenge PokerSnowie, up until Thursday 19th.
180,496 hands had been played in total and the average error rate for all players was rated as intermediate with a score of 16.52.
And PokerSnowie won an impressive 24.23 big blinds per 100 hands.
But we know that averages don’t always tell the full story. So we dug a bit deeper.
We started by removing the games we felt would not have any real relevance. Anything under 100 hands played, and any play with an error rate above 25 we deemed as non-reliable.
- 152, 558 hands played
- An average error rate of 13.65 which we classify as advanced.
- And PokerSnowie still made a significant profit of 16.98 bb/100
We then segmented the data according to our error rate classification to understand how PokerSnowie’s win rate was evolving around the competition level.
Results once again speak for themselves

Finally, we decided to simply consider challenges that included at least 1000 hands, as those would have more statistical significance in terms of overall win rate.
51 challengers had played a total of 95,107 hands – with an “advanced” error rate of 15.66. and still a significant loss towards PokerSnowie of 26.65 bb/100.
Although it is still early days to make any drastic conclusion, it is already very clear that PokerSnowie wins against the vast majority of its challengers, and overall in significant proportions.
We’ll continue to publish results on a regular basis.
In the meantime, please continue to challenge PokerSnowie - And we'll publicly acknowledge any challenger who manages to beat PokerSnowie over 5000 hands.
