Poker Bots

Poker bots are moving into online poker.

Is there any way to modify poker to leave it as a good game while making it less computer-friendly?

Bobby Fischer has invented chess variant with random openings (somewhat constrained) that doesn't reward memorizing openings--it's not clear whether it's more or less suseptable to computer analysis than standard chess is.

A fast googling suggests that there isn't a lot of betting on go, the most major computer-resistant game, whether online or off. Considering how old go is and assuming my google fu was adequate, this may suggest that betting on go is somehow unsatisfying.

Any predictions for the future of online betting? Will the whole thing focus on investments?
