MARK5000'S 9x9 OPENING EXPLORER!!!
Few things in life are as fun as statistics. And luckily I've got some right here for the 9x9 board. Huzzah!
Introducing: MARK5000'S 9x9 OPENING EXPLORER
In celebration of this release, I've put together a brief interview.
mark5000: Tell us a little bit about the Opening Explorer.
mark5000: Well, it's built on the new puzzles feature and contains a modest library of pro games (266 to be exact) with detailed statistics of each move, such as players and their ranks, winning percentages, dates, even bot evaluation. It's an ongoing project, but I hope to finish in the next couple of weeks as I find the time.
mark5000: Where did you get all these professional 9x9 games?
mark5000: A few places. GoBase was a very good start, though sadly lacking in metadata. I also got several games from World Baduk and an archive of RICOH Pair Go Cup games.
mark5000: What went into mark5000's 9x9 Opening Explorer?
mark5000: My heart. All of it. My guts, my intestines, my diaphragm. I pulled a few muscles. I had a few breakdowns. If you saw what I did to make this database you would have called 9-1-1.
