Bots getting stronger. European 6d level reached!
10 years ago my friend Andrey Hmyrov (amateur 6d) set a record by winning Many Faces of Go (that time one of the strongest programs) on 36 handicap stones!
Nowadays I am not sure that he can beat the best program on even.
Few days ago program, created by Facebook team beat Juri Kuronen, EGF 6-dan - one of the strongest masters of Finland!
It is still possible to imagine 3 stones difference with pro players, but it's getting smaller and smaller.
