|ManyFaces1 vs JulieBot|
In round 6, after 87 moves, ManyFaces1 and JulieBot reached the position shown to
the right (JulieBot is Black). It seemed to me that JulieBot was doing well –
though I may be mistaken. But what was remarkable was that while ManyFaces1 had used
57 minutes, JulieBot had used only 71 seconds. If JulieBot can play this fast and
reasonably well, I expect it will excel at blitz Go.
ManyFaces1 won convincingly. Over the whole game, it used three hours while JulieBot used five minutes. JulieBot can play so fast because it does no search.
