[Computer-go] Zen vs Tromp: now 1-1

Presumably John is fully motivated to win these test games, right?

It's almost annoying when you here some report of a game or match where a
computer did reasonably well only to hear the human was "experimenting"  or
"making the game interesting" by playing stupid moves or that he was "not
really trying" etc.

I would prefer to only hear about honest efforts with no excuses.

In this case I assume John is working hard for the wins.   Of course I don't
mind some experimentation if it's in the form of realistic attempts to learn
and probe the computers weaknesses.   It's encouraging that Zen can give him
some good resistance.    This was unthinkable just 10 years ago.
