This game more strange than interesting: http://theaigames.com/competitions/go/games/56f105114ca8010387ce2818
Look at 134 blue move - red has 276 points, but after this move it have 161. This is will ok if game played to logical end, but there is limit of 300 moves. And territory seem to be not important

Hah, thanks for bringing it to attention. (makes mental note to include some anti-manego patterns)

Here's the game by my bot that looks like a reasonable game of go (you have to squint and ignore the details): http://frogherd.com:2084/replay.3599

I'm seeing a few games where things like this happen:
I'm losing by a long way, then my opponent makes an illegal move and it's over. Seems to be a result of bots misinterpreting the new Ko input. My bot has risen significantly in the rankings, just because it makes consistently legal moves.

Yes. Me too. My bot's rating is artificially inflated by this. One case it was a ko. Sometime's it "error parsing response" or something similar.

This game looked like a convincing amateur human game. Neither side made any huge blunders. And the end score is nail-bitingly close! Congrats GoJohnnyGo!

In this game, my bot was clearly losing (216-152.5), but in the 250th move, Hohol fills their second-to-last eye and loses everything. Conclusion: Eyes are nice.

And that, my friends, is why we teach our engines to pass...

Some of these games are looking quite a lot like games between human beginners, with the exception of the endgame:
Even the blunders around rounds 132-136 are just the sorts of things beginning human players fail to see. The opening likewise: most of the spots filled in the opening are important points, and the shapes which develop look very much like a human opening, but once it gets into the fighting, it's clear that the deeper understanding is lacking - just like human beginners who have seen some games between strong players.
From the middle of the rankings though, no human game would ever look like the one in this link here!
I think it will be interesting to see the progress of this contest. :)
