Sorry this is so late. I thought I was on the 14th until Professor Evans corrected me in class.

On Tuesday we will be discussing ways to compute epsilon-equilibria for poker. We’ll review the CFR method previously discussed by Samee, then expand on the technique used in the Gilpen paper presented Thursday by Weikeng. The main focus of this class will be on convex optimization and how it can be used with Nerterov’s excessive gap technique to find epsilon-equilibria in poker. Papers to be covered include:
