My friend and I do this for teaching games. He is ~24kyu and I am ~11-13kyu. As we play through the game, we are both getting a centaur-assist from various AI bots, but he (the weaker player) is getting help from this version of Leela (rated 4dan out of the box)
and I am getting help from a slightly weaker online AI which lives here and plays at about a 2dan:
Both have options which show us a heatmap of the 4-5 most likely move responses in any situation. We use this as a teaching aide so that each of us has can
- evaluate and discuss the levels of risk to all the groups on the board
- talk about which strategy makes the best sense at that moment (defend? secure? attack? tenuki? big moves? etc)
- and then select from those available moves and see where that takes the game
It’s nice because having that set of “training wheels” takes some of the ego stuff out of a teaching game. So yeah, I say find someone on a similar level who is willing to do this kind of centaur-assist play with you, and focus on strategic discussion at every move rather than just winning or losing the game. The more you can create a useful narrative for WHY each given move makes sense, the more you can apply those lessons to your un-assisted games.
