Thanks for noting this. Crazy Stone won the first game! I did not expect a victory, especially since CS was running on my 6-core desktop.

But I am sure FJ will be more careful in the next rounds.

So no "20-core node of grid’5000"? Well, that makes first victory even more important.Bonus congrats for it!

Many thanks for the link with the analysis. Is this the kind of output that provides the commercial version of CS?

PS: I first read about this match on reddit/r/baduk. I assume it's ok to post in reddit the info you provide here, unless you prefer to do it yourself.

The grid was busy, so I had to use my home PC. Yes, the commercial version produces similar analysis (but without the full search tree that you can browse on the web page). Please feel free to post the links wherever you like.

Just an update. After the three first games the score is now 2:1 for the human.

It will mostly come down to where we get greater computing power and better programming techniques. Do any GO programs of today take advantage of multi core processing? I have the "Many Faces of GO" on this computer.
