|Full description=Recently GNU Go has been developed into a more sophisticated program playing at around the 16 kyu level on the NNGS Go server. The program builds cleanly on many platforms. An ASCII interface and an Emacs mode are also supported. This summer, for the first time, it participated in international tournament play. In the 21st Century Cup held at the US Go Congress, GNU Go placed 8th in a field of 12. This may not sound impressive but actually we were satisfied with its performance. GNU Go won 3 out of 6 games and two of the games it lost were close. Moreover it scored an upset win over former Ing Champion program Wulu. In the European Championship GNU Go placed second, winning 5 out of six rounds, and losing only to the undefeated GoAhead.

GNU Go

https://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/
Recently GNU Go has been developed into a more sophisticated program playing at around the 16 kyu level on the NNGS Go server. The program builds cleanly on many platforms. An ASCII interface and an Emacs mode are also supported. This summer, for the first time, it participated in international tournament play. In the 21st Century Cup held at the US Go Congress, GNU Go placed 8th in a field of 12. This may not sound impressive but actually we were satisfied with its performance. GNU Go won 3 out of 6 games and two of the games it lost were close. Moreover it scored an upset win over former Ing Champion program Wulu. In the European Championship GNU Go placed second, winning 5 out of six rounds, and losing only to the undefeated GoAhead.
