> All true, but in casinos counting cards is forbidden.  If, say, a 21
player is suspected of counting cards they just start a new deck (and they
are already using more than one). Counting would give an AI too much

And how does one know if an AI is counting? Even if it forgets which cards
it's seen, it still has a perfect memory of when each player chose to
bluff, as well as complete knowledge of card probabilities.

> Then there's bluffing.  I am certainly no top player, but a player who
never bluffs will be a loser, I think.  An AI who used only counting and
odds will be confused by a bluffer.

No, bluffing is part of the game and the AI knows what it is and how to do
it. It needs to decide when to do it, of course, based on everything it
knows about the game and the players.

>  Another unfair advantage for the AI is that human players often can use
'tells', some habit or tic by an opponent that tells what they have.  No AI
will show a tell, of course.
