hi There,

i have made an AI player for the game Oware, i am looking to improve my programming in order to make my player stronger. can anyone help?

here is my code

```
import random
#pots = [[1,2,8,4,2,6], [4,4,4,4,3,4]]
def ai_player(pots, scoring_pits, turn, valid_moves):
"""
Input:
pots: list of pot values for each player, e.g:
[[4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4], <-- always current player
[4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4]] <-- always opponent
scoring_pits: list of scoring pit values - [0, 0]
turn: integer turn counter (starts from 1)
valid_moves: list of valid moves (indexes), e.g:
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
Return:
pot index --> 0 to 5
--> pot value can't be zero
--> must be an integer object
