Hi all,

back from holidays I have just looked at some of the Edmonton games. The

the games against Go Intellect and Katsunari should give us lots of
indications where we need to improve GNU Go's fighting skills.

Maybe I will try to play moderator and see whether I can give GNU Go
plain some handicap.
