Top 19x19 program reaches 4200 BayesElo on CGOS. But 3100 in 9x9.
Maybe it is because people don't have much interest in 9x9.
But it seems value network does not work well in 9x9.
Weights_33_400 is maybe made by selfplay network. But it is 2946 in 9x9.
Weights_31_3200 is 4069 in 19x19 though.

In year 2012, Zen played 6 games against 3 Japanese Pros, and lost by 0-6.
And it seems Zen's 9x9 strength does not change big even now.

I feel there is still enough chance that human can beat best program in 9x9.
