If you are (or know) a 5d+ who would be interested in reviewing one of “my” high playout KataGo self-play (NZ rules, 7 komi) games of your choice on OGS in exchange for 25 euros sent per PayPal, DM me.
I’m a bit weaker than you’re looking for (3d EGF), but I would be willing to give it a try for free
What sort of insight are you looking for in the review? I’m guessing mainly trying to interpret the meaning of the moves in human terms?
Here’s a review I made a little while ago of a KataGo game:
For this review, I didn’t go into many detailed variations, but tried to focus on the flow of the game, and interpreting the intentions of the moves (as much as I can, of course some moves are completely beyond me). If this sort of review is interesting to you I could make one for one of your KataGo games
Absolutely! A 9d has PM’d me and I’ve agreed to pay him 25 euros, so it’s very fortunate you’re generously offering to do it for free - thank you. Feel free to pick the game that looks the most interesting to you from the thread I’ve linked based on my board preview and prescription.
I have to say from the rating graph I don’t understand the jump from 5d to 9d. There was a win on 9x9 against a 4d and the rating massively went from 5d to 9d? Was that manually adjusted or is that how these things work when you get that high up?
Actually nevermind - I don’t understand the rating system anyway at any rank
Wow, that’s a lot of work! There are probably a few mistakes I made in the video (for instance, move 232 second variation P12 is a really stupid move for white, the right move is Q11), hopefully none of them are too serious.
Was there anything you noticed where high-playout KataGo contradicted something I said?
The biggest contradiction was when black tenuki’d at 215. F11. High-playout KataGo thinks that if white ignores the tenuki and follows up at B6, it’s a game-losing mistake (the projected score changes from B+0.1 to B+3.14).
That was quite easy for katago to see even at low playouts, so that was what I tried to mention in the video: blacks “tenuki” turns out to be sente, but it’s a strange time to play it (especially since it doesn’t gain anything as far as I can tell).
I probably mentioned it in a confusing way though (not checking the video right now, going by memory)
