Bot only play?

I was wondering if there is any way to have only bots play?  I was thinking this would be a good way to play around with some AI ideas.

As a matter of fact you can. We tested the application assertions using bots-only play.
You can use the PokerConsole project to the program in command prompt; Run a single server and connect as many bots as you want.

To run the server:
> PokerConsole.exe texas 6060
This will create a texas hold'em server which listens on port 6060 for incoming connections
You will need to press "enter" on that command prompt to start the game.

To run a bot:
> PokerConsole.exe localhost 6060 bot
This will create a bot which will conncet to the server which listens on port 6060 on the localhost.
Remember that you need at least 2 bots to start the game.

Good luck!
