We compute the effective potential for the Polyakov loop in a pure SU(N) gauge theory beyond two-loop order. We introduce a new approach using the Poisson resummation formula, which is well suited to compute thermal sums/integrals with non-trivial holonomy. We discuss the implications for phenomenology with three colors, and theoretical questions at large N.
