[Computer-go] longest 3x3 game

Hi John,

very interesting. Is it allowed for players
to pass in between? Do these passes count like
normal moves?

Can you give us sgf?

My intuition says that there should be a constant
delta > 0 such that for all board sizes m x n (with
m > 1, n > 1) there exist games of length
at least (1 + delta)^(m*n).
And also for m x 1 boards (so, only one "long" streak)
there should exist games with length above
(1 + delta)^m (they might be constructed by doing some
pseudo-counting, starting at one end of the board).

Might neural nets help to find (very) long games 
for given board size?

Cheers, Ingo.
