What seems to me confused is that it is one thing to compare a
calculation between man Vs machine on/of knowable factors (things that
all must agree are true), measurable, objective data and another
claiming that one's surmise based on intuition, which subsumes the
analytical, is similar and can be computed.  Shakespeare had
imagination.  Why poker can never be a science, but remains an art,
unfortunately, unlike chess.

Notice, not one person has suggested a computer analysis could supply a
missing word, a word worthy of Shakespeare.  Machines don't coin words
spontaneously, break the [main]frame...
