Quick summary from the web site:
Losing all games but one (on 9x9) against Go4++.
Doing 50% against Go Intellect.
Winning all games against Star of DongHwa, Ether, and Magog.

Games against very weak opponents may be amusing to watch occasionally
but it would clearly be a win to get another six games against more

I saw something on the web pages about Go4++ protesting a result
