The bot hasn't got a chance against nuanced judgements that the human mind can makeI'm sure that's right although once an exchange goes down the path of becoming automated it's hard to go backwards. I wouldn't be surprised if software were to emerge in the future which would out perform and have better judgement than any gambler, which would rather change the game somewhat as said software is likely to become widely available.
Deep Blue beat Kasparov after a number of years of research and work of brilliant minds - the bookies are 20 years behind that imo, plus I suspect that most of the better bots are run by enthusiastic amateurs rather that full scale pro- ops. Imight be wrong on the latter point
