Gentlemen, Let's Play Poker!

It has been a dream of mine for a long time to make or participate in a little coding contest - but I havn't really been able to think of a good topic for it - until now. A couple of weeks ago we were a small group of friends gathered for one of our usual Texas Hold'em poker nights.
As usual I went home empty handed - but this time I at least had an idea in my head....The ideal topic for a coding contest is something as simple as a poker game. But this time, the game should be played between coded bots, and we'll replace the casino with a webservice.

I've begun making the webservice and a good basic library for Pokerbots - now all I need are developers, a grand prize and a couple other minor details.

Anyone interested in participating in this, drop a comment to this post, please. I'll be back with more info later on rules, time, etc. Let the best Bot win!
