No, programs have been designed that consistently beat the best poker players, which requires the ability to bluff. Similarly, an unbeatable Go, a game that is much for complex than chess by several orders of magnitude, has been created. If someone were to invest the resources, a similar program could be made for Stratego.

It is likely that in the near future computers will vastly surpass mankind's abilities. At this point, it would be trivially easy for a machine to beat any person in Stratego.

AI will have zero problems to bluff. Poker AI has brought bluffing to the next level, helped by the fact that in any spot it will have some % of bluffs and some % of good hands and it will put the human in unguessable spots when shoving allin for a very large amount compared to pot size.

The equivalent in Stratego is an unknown piece coming at you and you not having a clue what it is and what the actual plan of the AI is: either saccing it for info or capturing a nearby known or moved piece?

The intuition part will be learned by having good rules about positional values, thousands of setups in memory that will force humans to make setups that are less predictable, something where the computer will have 0 problems with.

The AI will crush humans in any thinking game and Stratego is certainly no exception.

https://www.alphagomovie.com/ is now live on Netflix worldwide (works in the Netherlands as well). Features the match of AlphaGo against Lee Sedol in March 2016. Few technical details, but worth watching to see how quickly machines can conquer a seemingly indomitable domain.
