Poker Bot Crackdown in Macau
Law enforcement officials are finally starting to up their efforts on combating the growing poker bot problem. Yesterday they arrested a poker bot that appeared to be of Japanese make in downtown Macau. It will be summarily executed, Chinese-style, which is a good thing in my opinion. It sends a clear message that we cannot allow these wicked automatons to take over our live poker tournaments and our bankrolls.
The nagging question here is: Have these things become self-sustaining and self-replicating â creating new and even more malevolent poker bots by themselves? It is my estimation that this could be the case and itâs time for widespread panic.
