Black won 19 games and White 17.
Five players registered. To make the numbers even, I included Imrscl, full name Iomrascálaí, which was acting as a "ghost" to make the numbers even instead of GNU Go. Iomrascálaí is the work of Urban Hafner (contributor to HouseBot), Igor Polyakov, and Thomas Poinsot.
In round 1, Imrscl repeatedly joined and left its game with HiraBot, but never made a move. It lost on time.
In round 2, Imrscl repeatedly joined and left its game with abakus, until its operator Urban Hafner found he could fix the problem by removing the kgs-chat command. It was then able to play, but lost the game.
In its round 7 game against HiraBot, LeelaBot tried to make an illegal move, which the server rejected, and LeelaBot eventually lost on time. This did not affect the result, it was almost 80 points behind. The illegal move (e14 at move 370) was not a superko or anything subtle, it just tried to play into its opponent's one-point eye.
