Dustin Gouker : May 11th, 2015


Did a team of poker players really tie the computer Claudico, despite coming out ahead? And who is BLUFF’s new No. 1-ranked player? It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.

A tie, huh?

Well, our Alex Weldon takes a closer look at whether such a claim might actually be accurate, or if the pros deserved to be declared the outright winner.
