The first round started at 16:00 UTC.
In the table above,
Twelve players registered. We welcomed one new player, Cyrago, by French programmer Harald Johnsen. Cyrago is derived from an old version of libego by Łukasz Lew, and also uses Mark Boon's ladder code.
|WeakBot50k vs PnuGo|
In round 2, WeakBot50k chased PNUGo's stones in a ladder that did not work for two reasons ‒ there was an extra liberty, and there was a ladder-breaker. PNUGo played correctly, as seen to the right, but spent a lot of time thinking about each move, using up most of its time for the game. However it was able to play fast in its remaining time, and win the game.
|ManyFaces1 vs pachi2|
In round 3 CzechBot got a won position against WeakBot50k, but then, with 3 seconds of main time left on its clock, started passing, allowed its opponent to capture some of its groups, and lost the game. It acted as if it was unaware of the overtime.
Also in round 3 Zen19 beat pachi2, to become the only played on three wins.
In round 4 ManyFaces1 and pachi2 fought a semeai in the top right of the board, as shown to the left. When ManyFaces1 tenukied with move 64, and again with 66, pachi2 played further moves to secure its win of the semeai. I find it hard to believe that this sequence can have been correct: if the semeai was unsettled White should not have tenukied, and if it was settled in Black's favour, Black should not have played there again. Pachi eventually won this game.
In round 7 CzechBot was missing from the server. It did not join its game with ManyFaces1, and lost on time. Its operator eventually realised that the computer it was running on had been switched off, and got it restarted in time for the next roiund.
In round 8 break19 was missing from the server. It lost all its subsequent games on time.
As in round 3, CzechBot again started passing when it had only 3 seconds of main time left, and lost the game as a result.
Cyrago beat PNUGo by half a point, having allowed its opponent to fill several dame while it filled its own territory, as is common with MC-based programs.
