Note: This competition was proposed to AAAI and is supported by the Poker Research Group at the University of Alberta. I have been asked to serve as impartial "arbiter" and to supervise the evaluation process so that U. Alberta has the option of participating in the competition. They deserve our hearty appreciation for creating this opportunity for the community.

Best of luck to all!
