A bot with 100apm is going to be mechanically superior to a human. Those pro APM numbers are busy movements, they do not at all translate to efficient game inputs. There have been pro players who have achieved a high level of competition with as little as 90 apm, an AI with 300apm is vastly more capable than any human.

The contest with human players is always going to be against the depth and completeness of the training data. Beating a pro player in five matches is just the beginning. Tightening up all of the edge cases is the real challenge, and I expect for a while still human players will have the advantage given enough time to experiment with the AI.
