The first round started at 22:00 UTC.
After three rounds, I noticed that Black had seven wins, White had one. I assumed it was just random, but decided to check again later. I checked again after round 7, and found that now Black had eight wins and White had twelve.

Black won 11 games and White won 13.
Six players registered.
The round 2 game between DolBaram and Zen19S was interesting, attracting over 100 observers. The consensus among them was that DolBaram had an early lead, but fell behind in the late midgame.

In round 6, Zen19S played DolBaram again. For this game there were at times over 120 kibitzers. Again the consensus was that DolBaram had an early lead, but lost this in the midgame. DolBaram's move 81, shown to the right, was criticised: Ootakamoku [4d]: "what a sad exchange", ppp: "e16 seems really awful". Indeed, it appears to me that move 81 throws away a liberty in sente; White loses a liberty and a potential eye, but Black's liberties are more important.
After round 3, I happened to notice that Black had won seven games, and White had won only one. I decided it was not significant, but it might be worth checking again later. After round 7 I checked again and found that Black had won eight and White twelve.
