Whenever game theory is applied to real world games, the models tend to be much larger than the toy examples that are traditionally studied. New techniques are constantly being developed to try to tackle large games. One of the benchmarks for evaluating such new techniques is poker. In this talk, I will present some of the techniques that have been applied recently to the game of Texas Hold'em poker. The talk will include an introduction to the game theory used as well as an introduction to poker.
