Excluding forfeited games, Black won 26 games and White won 31.
Eight players registered. These included matilda, by Gonšalo Mendes Ferreira, a newcomer to these events (it had hoped to play in the November tournament, but had to withdraw).
In round 1, ManyFaces1 had trouble connecting. It had not played on KGS since July, and since then there had been new releases of both kgsGtp and Java. It lost its game, on time, to WeakNot, without being able to make any move.
Also in round 1, NiceGo19N and abakus failed to agree on the status of some stones after both players had passed. The game entered the clean-up phase, and NiceGo19N failed to make a move, and so lost on time. In fact it was a won position for abakus.
In round 2, ManyFaces1 connected successfully for its game with matilda. But after making six moves matilda vanished, and lost on time.
Also in round 2, raybot beat abakus.
Before round 4, matilda reconnected, and started to play AyaMC. But it disconnected again, and lost on time.
In round 7, matilda withdrew from the rest of the tournament.
|WeakBot vs Raybot|
|At the game end|
In round 12, Raybot appeared to understand that "bent four in the corner" is dead, and when it and its opponent WeakBot passed, in the position shown to the right, Raybot claimed that WeakBot's dead corner was indeed dead. WeakBot disputed this, and the game went into the clean-up phase. Raybot did not try to capture the bent-four group, nor the single dead white stone, but passed; so WeakBot was credited with the win. I hope that Raybot will implement the clean-up phase sometime.
