Other work in computer poker

Since the founding of game theory by John Von Neumann, poker has been the subject of mathematical and economics analyses. However, these studies have used oversimplified versions of poker, making most of the work done in these areas not applicable to the development of strong poker-playing programs. In computer science, poker has been used as a testbed in different areas such as cognitive science, machine learning, search and Bayesian networks.
