Hi, I have a question regarding where the money comes from for the prizes. This site hasn't any public sponsor or ads that we know of, therefore i think it is a legitimate question. And second point, a warlight challenge is one thing, but a poker challenge is a complete other thing. I come from the poker community, and since a few years, online poker bots have been developping in numbers on various poker sites. This poker challenge thus raises the issue of what is done with the bots that programmers creates here. There isn't any license agreement or copy rights saying you can't use them for profit after the competition to play on poker sites...

A valid question, indeed. Prizes for the Warlight AI Challenge (and as far as I know, the same will be done for our new Heads Up Omaha Challenge) are sponsored by Star Apple: a recruitment agency trying to think 'outside the box' and implementing cool stuff to give back to and attract attention from the developer community. :)
I'll be honest and say we didn't expect The AI Games to grow as fast as it did, and therefore all available power was put into fixing bugs and developing new features.

Adding to what Jackie already mentioned: the licence agreement we're going to add will grant The AI Games permission to use your code to play matches within a single AI competition on our own site.
