As a general guideline for how strong a bot must be to enter these events,
I say it should
only enter if it has a reasonable chance of beating GNU Go, which at KGS 7k
than any of the regular players. If you have implemented kgsGtp, you could
run your bot
on KGS against human players to see how strong it is - if you want "rated
bot" status for
a stable version of it, I can encourage the admin who can assign this
