Python for Poker Strategies
In this talk, Bill will begin with some python modules and tools and ideas you may need for implementing poker strategies and simulations. Then he will talk about GTO (game theory optimal) play and algorithms of how to generate GTO strategies in poker, pointers to some papers. Bill also feels Python is a great tool for prototyping solutions to toy games even when you may want to implement the real game solution in a compiled language like C, C++.
Bill Chen is a quantitative analyst at SIG, poker player, book author, and software designer. You can read more about Bill on his Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Chen
