Exhibition Games: Fuego vs Humans
For games against other programs see the
Human vs. Computer Go Competition at IEEE WCCI 2012 in Brisbane
Fuego won a 19x19 game with only 2 handicap stones against Chang Sheng-Shu,
6 Dan amateur.
Fuego also won a 9x9 game against Tsai Shang-Rong, 6 Dan amateur.
Komi was 7 points.
This game was very close and looked like it could be jigo (tie),
but move 32 was a mistake by the human.
Fuego played a 13x13 (no handicap, 0.5 komi) and a 19x19 game (6 handicap)
against Chou Chun-Hsun, professional 9 Dan, but was crushed both times.
Human machine competition in Barcelona 2010
played well in its 9x9 games with White, winning against professional
4 Dan Chou Ping-Chiang and losing after achieving a winning middle game
position against Chou Chun-Hsun 9 Dan.
However, its games with Black and its handicap games on 13x13
were one-sided wins for the humans.

Human vs. Computer Program Competition (FUZZ-IEEE 2009)
At this event, held August 21-22 2009 on Jeju Island, Korea,
Fuego played a total of three official games.
Two were 9x9 games against the top-rank (9 Dan) professional
player Chou Chun-Hsun (his name is also transliterated as Zhou Junxun).
Fuego won the first game playing white against Mr. Chou by 2.5 points.
It is the first time that a computer program has won a 9x9 game
on even against a top-ranked player, so this represents a milestone
for Computer Go.
Fuego lost the second game against Mr. Chou, playing Black.
In the final official game, Fuego got an upset win on 19x19
against Mr. Chang Shen-Su, a strong 6-Dan amateur player, with
4 handicap stones.
