Black won 17 games and White won 15.
|AyaMC vs Cyrago|
In round 2, when AyaMC played the move shown to the right, Cyrago resigned. This seems early. Admittedly, Cyrago has suffered a loss in the bottom left, and now has a weak grop in the top left: it is definitely losing. But the resignation seems a bit early. There is plenty of game left.
|MCark vs NiceGo19N|
In round 3, when NiceGo19N played the move shown to the left, MCark
stopped running. Its operator relaunched it several times: each time it
immediately stopped running again. Its operator therefore ofered to resign
One way for an operator to resign on behalf of his program is to close it, and log in to its account (possibly intending to join its game and to resign for it). As soon as the KGS server detects that someone has logged in to a bot's account while the bot is playing in a tournament, it assumes he is intending to cheat, and forfeits the game.
The method which MCark's operator actually used was to do nothing, and to wait until it had lost on time. So this game is shown in the cross-table above as lost on time, whereas it was really lost by resignation.
|Zen19S vs CrazyStone|
Also in round 3, CrazyStone had been winning this game, as seen in the diagram shown to the right. But after the moves shown, it thought that Zen's one-eyed white group in the upper left was dead, and played very cautiously as a result. In fact this group is alive in seki, as a human 5-kyu would realise. Zen19S was able to catch up as a consequence of CrazyStone's cautious play. Zen19S won this game, to become the only undefeated player.
In round 7 CrazyStone suffered its second loss, again to Zen19S.
AyaMC was unfortunate to appear below nomitan in the cross-table, and to score fewer "Annual points". Both players lost all their games to Zen19S CrazyStone, and DolBaram; both won all their games against NiceGo19N, Cyrago, and MCark; and in the only game between them, AyaMC beat nomitan. However, AyaMC played more games against stronger opponents, so they tied on number of wins. They also tied on SOS, surprisingly in view of AyaMC being drawn against stronger opponents; but I have checked, the SOS values are correct. And NomiBot's SoDOS was one point higher.
