Another month has passed and 1.5 million more hands have been played against PokerSnowie. So we thought it was probably time for an update
Since December 12th 2013:
- 4550 challengers
- 3,346,532 hands played
- Average intermediate error rate of 17.53
- Challengers have lost 18.61bb/100 against PokerSnowie
- PokerSnowie’s profit, had it been playing for real money, would stand at €23.7 Million, which I think we can all agree, isn't a bad profit.
If we’re removing the outliers (less than 100 hands played, and an error rate above 25), we have 2.8 million hands played on an average error rate of 14.05 and a profit for PokerSnowie of €12.3 Million (12.29 bb/100), which again, is worth having!
So let’s drill down into the data:
As we anticipated PokerSnowie's overall win rate has gone down slightly as players have continued to improve and optimise their game.
But the figures confirm the trends that we had already seen in our previous updates: PokerSnowie wins consistently more against its weaker opponents.
This really confirms the objectivity of the error rate as a very solid evaluation tool for a player’s level.
Similarly, when segmented by table size, the relationship between levels of play and win rate is highlighted further: (95% confidence level variance indicated in brackets next to the win rate)
PokerSnowie continues to show its particular strengths in the HU format, although it is at present slightly behind some of its world class challengers.
So would Dan “Jungleman” Cates or Viktor “Isildur” Blom beat PokerSnowie? Over the last 50 000 hands played HU against world class opponents, PokerSnowie was a 0.42 bb/100 winner; or to put it another way, the evidence suggests it would be a challenge worth watching!
The number of “well established” PokerSnowie challengers has nearly doubled in a month: 100 individuals who played in excess of 5000 hands each, totalling 1,076,880 hands. Against this group of players, PokerSnowie has actually increased its win rate from 9.85bb/100 a month ago to 11.69bb/100. Still, just under 1/3 of the players managed to come out on top.
The next big feature update to Challenge PokerSnowie is coming Monday 24th of February with the launch of….well we can't really tell you now, can we?
But, to give you a hint, we’ll borrow the words of Alex, one of our product testers:
“Wow, this is GTO poker training on steroids!”
