National Rugby League (NRL) of Australia has officially announced their contract renewal with Sportsbet. This agreement will mean that Sportsbet will become the sports official wagering partner.
The 4 year renewed contract agreement is reported to be valued at $60 million. Furthermore, the agreement is expected to put funds back into the sport at all levels.
Andrew Abdo, Head of Commercial, said the renewal will come with a range of conditions in terms of advertising and marketing, responsible gaming, as well as data and privacy protocols. These new conditions are expected to improve the integrity of the game in wagering quite significantly.
Abdo further commented saying one of the crucial factors in the agreement is that there will be controls in place to restrict the promotion of wagering, especially to minors.
The other benefit of the agreement for the NRL is that Sportsbet will be able to improve the NRL’s digital capability. This is will in-turn open up new opportunities for the game in terms of data analytics, insights, and direct marketing.
Sportsbet Chief Marketing Officer, Barni Evans said the agreement would reaffirm Sportsbet’s strong links with sport.
The interest in Rugby League has boomed, and this new agreement will definitely help the company to continue grow the interest among fans.

29-year-old Christian Harder won the first PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event. The event which was originally known as the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure underwent the name change as part of the rebranding of the PokerStar’s Live Tours. This meant that Harder not only became the first PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event winner, but he also earned the title of the first champion on a new tour.
Top Prize: $429,664.00
Points Harder Earned for the 2017 Card Player of the Year Race: 1,824
Sponsor: Commerce Hotel & Casino
With Harder winning the event, it placed him on top of the overall Player of the Year (POY) standings and awarded him a cheque worth $429, 664.00. In the final round, Harder faced 51-year-old Cliff Josephy. Josephy was able to make a comeback to make it a Heads-Up play against Harder, but it was Harder who managed to finish on top.
Harder said was pretty amazing as he had come a full circle. He further added it was where it all started for him. He had never played a big buy in until the 2008 PCA. Harder had never won a major tournament in his 9 years of playing and for him to finally win one was awesome.
The advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been broadly explored the past few decades. However, the greatest breakthrough in AI experiments came through recently.
AI and its application to the game of poker are the focus of research for two Carnegie Mellon University scholars. Computer Science professor, Tuomas Sandholdm and Ph.D. student Noam Brown, developed an AI program that is capable of beating out top professional poker players.
To put the invention to the test, Libratus, the name of the program is known by, took on four season poker players in a 20 day No Limit Hold’em heads-up match. He took on Jimmy Chou, Dong Kim, Jason Les, and Daniel McAulay. Libratus managed to beat them all out by ending the tournament with $1.7 million worth of chips.
At first, Libratus had difficulty sorting through imperfect information, while trying to detect whether his opponents were bluffing. This is because Libratus has been developed to deploy a different kind of approach to the game of poker, in comparison to previous AI products.
After each day Libratus would analyse his strategy used throughout the day with the use of a complex meta-algorithm. He also explored the holes his opponents had spotted in his behavior during a round of poker. From here, he would prioritize these behaviours and improve on the three most obvious behaviours.
Libratus was able to self-improve his gameplay each day and his ability to identify the presence and essence of holes in his own strategy are what has made Libratus’s ability ground-breaking.
This has left Libratus for the time being the most proficient program in heads-up No-Limit Hold’em games. However, the more players at one poker table does mean more possible outcomes. Effectively, this does provide more of a challenge for the AI program to go for the best possible moves.
