  • Abstract: Recently, deep neural networks have achieved superhuman performance in various games such as Go, chess and Shogi. Compared to Go, China Competitive Poker, also known as Dou dizhu, is a type of imperfect information game, including hidden information, randomness, multi-agent cooperation and competition. It has become widespread and is now a national game in China. We introduce an approach to play China Competitive Poker using Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to predict actions. This network is trained by supervised learning from human game records. Without any search, the network already beats the best AI program by a large margin, and also beats the best human amateur players in duplicate mode.
  • Keywords: artificial intelligence, China competitive poker, Dou dizhu, CNN, imperfect information game
  • TL;DR: This paper introduces a method to play China competitive poker using deep neural network, gets the state of the art performance.
