Rules are: Lee starts with 2 stones but white gets 7.5 points. If he wins, second game is even, if loses, second game with 3 stones. Depending on the results of the second game, third game’s handicap is also adjusted. (Time limit is 2 hours, I think)
To remind, AI opponent is called Handol (한돌, 韩豆). Last AI tournament it finished 3rd losing only to FineArt and Golaxy. Link to 3rd place match. In January it also played a series of games against top Korean players, one game against Shin Jinseo is on youtube:
Already only around one week left. I can’t wait for the match. I wonder if anyone is going to cover it live. Maybe Yoonyoung? Or @xhu98 has any plans? I also think we could relay the moves on OGS since it’s such a big match.
So what’s our predictions? How will the match go? Lots of people say with authority that Lee is going to win 3 stones against komi. And to not be a sheep I want to say that Handol wins second game too so it’s going to be 0-0-1 for Lee Sedol. Is it too crazy to imagine bots learning to play handicap well?
Lee’s interview, you can auto-generate auto-translate subtitles.
Nope, TBH, I’m still overwhelmed by Real Life “and stuff”. I was honestly expressing a wish. But I don’t really have the time to write up something informative, I know too little about the match, etc., etc.
