The 2001 European Go Congress
Computer Go

The competition was held on August 1st. The sponsors, Fujitsu-Siemens, kindly provided ten Fujitsu Siemens Scenic D PCs, with PIII 1.0 Ghz processors, for the event. As this was greater than the number of entrants, it was possible to multi-task the slower programs, and complete an all-play-all within the day.

The rules used were

  • area ("Chinese") scoring
  • one hour each, sudden death
  • 6½ komi

Fujitsu-Siemens generously provided a prize of £IR100.00. This was won by GoAhead, and presented by a representative of Fujitsu-Siemens.
