We Asked ChatGPT to Predict the WSOP $25K Heads Up Championship
With Day 2 of the $25,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship at the 2023 World Series of Poker currently in motion, PokerNews thought it'd be a fun idea to ask the artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT to predict the outcome of the event.
From the original field of 64, just 16 players made it through to Day 2, where the Round of 16 and Quarter Finals will play out on the WSOP felt.
Among those who fell by the wayside in the first session included Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and 2022 WSOP Main Event champion Espen Jorstad, while the likes of Doug Polk, Chris Brewer and Chance Kornuth all managed to navigate through the first two rounds successfully.
So, we inputted the matchups into ChatGPT to see how it thinks the Heads Up Championship will play out. It produced many hypothetical eye-catching confrontations while also thinking that a certain someone would pick up their fourth WSOP bracelet.

Round of 16
ChatGPT also expanded on its predictions and gave reasons for producing the outcomes it did. For example, in the Sean Winter and Kevin Rabichow showdown, the AI bot had this to say:
"Winter's consistency and experience in high-stakes tournaments make him a formidable opponent. However, Rabichow has shown great skill and an ability to adapt to different playing styles. This match will likely be fiercely contested, but we predict Winter will prevail with his solid track record and deep understanding of the game."
ChatGPT also predicted that Daemon Richardson, Chanracy Khun, Isaac Kempton, Chris Brewer, and Anthony Zinno would make it through to the next round alongside the aforementioned Kornuth and Polk.
|Daemon Richardson v Eric Wasserson||Daeman Richardson|
|Sean Winter v Kevin Rabichow||Sean Winter|
|Chanracy Khun v Gabor Szabo||Chanracy Khun|
|Landon Tice v Chance Kornuth||Chance Kornuth|
|Roberto Perez v Isaac Kempton||Isaac Kempton|
|Doug Polk v Reiji Kono||Doug Polk|
|Chris Brewer v Tyler Gaston||Chris Brewer|
|Joshua Heinzl v Anthony Zinno||Anthony Zinno|
One of the interesting quarter-final matchups forecasted by ChatGPT is between Chris Brewer and Anthony Zinno. And it believes that Brewer will be the player to come out on top. It told us that:
"Brewer's ability to read opponents and adapt his strategy accordingly could give him an advantage against Zinno. Zinno's experience and versatility cannot be underestimated, but Brewer's recent performances might tip the scales in his favor. Our prediction leans towards Brewer progressing to the semi-finals."
|Daeman Richardson v Sean Winter||Sean Winter|
|Chanracy Khun v Chance Kornuth||Chance Kornuth|
|Isaac Kempton v Doug Polk||Doug Polk|
|Chris Brewer v Anthony Zinno||Chris Brewer|
ChatGPT has envisaged some absolute dream heads-up matches for the semi-final. Winter, Kornuth, Polk and Brewer are all considered elite poker players and the idea that these could be the semi-finals brackets is a salivating thought.
Kornuth and Winter have already battled each other this series, as both players finished second and third in Event #2: $25,000 High Roller 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em, respectively.
If the Polk and Brewer face-off happens as foretold, audiences can expect a jovial encounter. However, ChatGPT thinks Polk would have the last laugh.
ChatGPT projected that "Polk's aggressive style could put Brewer on the backfoot in this matchup. However, Brewer's ability to make precise reads and adapt his strategy accordingly could make it a tough battle for Polk. This match could swing either way, but our prediction leans towards Polk moving on to the final."
|Sean Winter v Chance Kornuth||Sean Winter|
|Doug Polk v Chris Brewer||Doug Polk|
Will it be Winter's first bracelet or number four for Polk? Well, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that ChatGPT thinks that heads-up specialist Polk emerges as the victor. It's a safe bet from ChatGPT as Polk is widely regarded as the best heads-up no-limit hold'em player of all time.
It speculated, "If these two skilled players were to face off in the final, it would undoubtedly be an exhilarating match. Winter's consistency and ability to thrive under pressure could challenge Polk's aggressive style and deep understanding of the game. While both players possess exceptional skills, our hypothetical prediction leans towards Doug Polk emerging as the 2023 WSOP $25,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship champion."
However, with the matchups still playing out, who knows who will reach the final and capture the winner's spoils? If you want to find out how the Heads Up Championship concludes, then head over to the PokerNews live reporting page.
