Du’s ‘Team Dragon’ consisted of a mix of players and engineers who used their poker/AI knowledge to counter Lengpudashi. Texas hold’em was often thought to be a tough game for AIs to beat …

These moves marked PokerStars’ commitment to spending big on celebrity athletes who can attract recreational players. But it appears that this era is officially over because the Team SportStars page is completely empty.
