Hi Peter,

this is not exactly what you have been asking for, but the
operating mask of "Many Faces of Go"-bot gives an interesting
judgement by senoir programmer David Fotland.

The levels of play say about strength on 19x19 board:

* 1-dan (full Monte Carlo, without artificial time limit)
* 3-kyu (Monte Carlo with 3,000 playouts per move)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
* 6-kyu (best level of traditional Many Faces - without Monte Carlo techniques)

So, this would mean a difference of 6 grades between MC and non-MC for Many Faces.

Cheers, Ingo.
