Dear Ingo and others,
I'd like to note that Zen19A limits the handicap upto 4 stones
instead of usual 6. This is the reason the account is not Zen19
but Zen19A. #It's weill known that MC bots are not good at
(high) handicap games.

>for the first time there is a bot with "stable" 8-dan rank on KGS:
>Zen19A, an alternative Zen account.
>Congratulations to the Zen team!
>And an observation:
>Already several games against human players with 8-dan
>or 9-dan rank have been played by Zen19A in the last
>Likely, opponents in this strong range will help the
