Would the number of players at a poker table alter a capable AI/ML's chances of winning?

I don't see how it would, so long as every player was playing fairly.

I would assume that it would not matter if the unknown cards were dealt to more players or still in the deck.

EDIT (to add some context): I am trying to determine if it would be "safer" for human players to play poker on larger online poker tables vs smaller online poker tables. Given that they can never be sure if it's an AI playing behind one of the various screen names they're up against.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello. Welcome to AI SE. Can you explain why you're asking this question (i.e. provide more context, such as "I found that there's this AI called 'X' that beats a single human player at poker, but would it be able to beat multiple human players at the same time?": btw, I don't really know if this is true or to what extent, although I heard of AIs playing poker) and argue your last assumption? $\endgroup$

While this might be a cheesy approach to this, I want to add this perspective.

Assume all $N$ poker players are equally skilled AIs. This gives each each of the agents a probability of winning $\frac{1}{N}$. This carries similar over to a game where not all are equally skilled.
