A bot has beaten a top poker professional at a popular poker game called Limit Texas Hold 'em. Its the same game you see all over the cable channels, except there is a limit on the money one can bet.

The computer is called Polaris and it beat some of the best poker pros 3 games to 2 with one draw. Some humans are saying it was just beginners luck, that it takes a long winning streak to prove that the robot is superior to the human when it comes to games.

Gary Kasparov never quite had the same cache when beaten by a computer, and his ego rivals those of top poker players. Place your bets on whether this will be a made-for-television event soon.
