Inside PokerSnowie's brain reveals the work of the Snowie AI Team. It explores first hand how the brain of PokerSnowie evolves and learns advanced strategic concepts, on its own.
PokerSnowie's ultimate aim is to produce the perfectly balanced game, find the ultimate un-exploitable equilibrium for all No Limit Hold'em configurations. Join us on this fascinating journey, which is just starting, into the future of poker.
Is PokerSnowie still alive?
There are few things we’ve been working on recently, and with this blog post we will give you some information and a general idea.
New User Interface compatible with Mac
After a few years out there, we decided to review the PokerSnowie user interface, to make it more modern and intuitive. But the main goal of this new development is for us to make a version which is multiplatform and in particular which is compatible with the Mac operating system. This is why the first release of the new version will actually be deployed for Mac users, who have been asking us for a while now for a version which would work on their favourite operating system.
Initially the Mac compatible version of PokerSnowie will contain the Training features and a partial version of the scenarios. Actually, the only scenarios-related feature that’s missing will be the ability to save a scenario and open a saved one, but this will come soon anyway.
Still under evaluation are the other features, which will be implemented over time, also depending on the customers’ demands and needs.
We are aiming to release this new version by the end of the summer.
Postflop Table in Grid format
We have been criticised often for the format of our hand range feature, which is very important for any serious poker student, and which we admit is not really intuitive. A grid format, like the one used in applications like, for example, Flopzilla, would be better and would better help our users’ understanding of the various ranges and how they change according to the players actions.
A first prototype of this feature is already done, but we need some time to debug and test it. Therefore we prefer now to focus on the Mac compatible version and once this is out, we will work to finalise the Postflop table.
New experimental AI version
We do have a new NL AI, developed with a completely different technology, which shows very good results during our simulations against the current PokerSnowie version. Our AI team is evaluating how to proceed in the future and our current idea is to release the option for the user to train against this new version, but we need to think about several details and how to approach the whole experience, in order to keep the learning and training flow consistent for the user. We might be ready to release this new version early 2020.
