Artificial Intelligence Developed to See Through the “Poker Face”

When players are at the poker table, there is plenty of deception that goes on. One of the biggest things that players attempt to hide is any expression on their faces of how good or bad their hands are – the proverbial “poker face.” According to scientists, they have now developed an artificial intelligence that can see through anyone’s attempts to hide their emotions and feelings. In a recent TED Talk, Dolby Laboratories scientist Poppy Crum explained how the company came up with the software to be able to break down what someone’s disposition is. “It’s the end of the poker face,” she said during the TED discussion. “We broadcast our emotions…we will know more about each other than we ever have.” Using a combination of sensors and monitors along with a sophisticated interpretation program, Crum states that micromovements of the face, a rise in skin temperature and other indicators

Online Gambling Bill Makes It Through Michigan House Committee

A bill to legalize online gambling passed through a Michigan House of Representatives committee Wednesday and though it will be nearly impossible for it to advance any further during this legislative session, there is some hope for the next. The Bill, House Bill 4926, was introduced by Rep. Brandt Iden three months ago. He told Online Poker Report (OPR) in October that he wanted to see it pass the House by Thanksgiving. “Throughout the month of October, I’m hoping to gain a lot of headway,” Iden told OPR. “If I had my way, we’ll be able to get everyone to the table and put a bill together and through the House before the Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll see how achievable it is, but that’s my goal.” Well, it clearly wasn’t achievable, as it only just now made it through a committee and the legislative session is about to end. The good

Party Poker MILLIONS Series Looks to Break Through in 2018

While PokerStars has been very active in the live poker community, first with the dearly departed European Poker Tour (a moment of silence, please) and now the PokerStars Championships, partypoker has been relatively quiet. That will change in 2018 as partypoker is upping the ante on their live efforts with the second year of their Party Poker MILLIONS Series. After testing the waters with smaller live events, partypoker has gone full bore with trying to kickstart their live poker ventures and the MILLIONS franchise. They hired the founder of the EPT, John Duthie, to be the president of Party Poker LIVE (the overseer of the MILLIONS events) earlier in 2017 and followed it up by drawing former World Poker Tour announcer and Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton away from the WPT for an executive position with the organization. Those two gentlemen seem to have put the final touches on

Five Years Too Late: Howard Lederer Apologizes for “Black Friday” – Through Daniel Negreanu

In the five years since “Black Friday” hit the online poker industry, poker professional Daniel Negreanu has been one of the more vocal critics of the people that were in charge of one of the rooms involved in that situation, Full Tilt Poker. Now, more than five years later, Negreanu is allowing one of the culprits of that infamous day to issue his mea culpas, for reasons that are unknown at this time. Negreanu opens his blog post discussing his own opinions that came from the “Black Friday” actions. “I don’t regret being vocal about it all, but I would have left out the talk of baseball bats (Negreanu once threatened “old school Vegas action” on the person we are soon to meet) and handled my response more responsibly,” Negreanu writes. He then goes on to introduce the disgraced Howard Lederer, who issued a statement to the poker community through
