The human players, with frankly stupid names like Nick “stoxtrader” Grudzien, Matt “Hoss_TBF” Hawrilenko and IJay “doughnutz” Palansky, won two games, drew one and lost three to Polaris, which has significantly improved its poker skills since its shameful defeat to a team of carbon-based meat-bags in 2007.

Polaris, when picking up its trophy and cheque, said “NEXT STOP TOTAL OBLITERATION OF PATHETIC HUMAN INFESTATION.”
