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.

Best, Hideki

>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

>Likely, opponents in this strong range will help the
