UEC 2014 official final results?

Hi,

I can not find an official final result page of this years UEC cup.

Would be great, as I try to get a hardware sponsor and like to prove,
that the world best programs are playing in KGS tournaments...

Or is there another good source to prove this?

Thanks Detlef
Picon

The last extension for ICCTIM2014 deadline!

A few questions from a beginner

Hello everyone, nice to meet you all. I've recently started writing a go 
engine as a change of pace from dealing with my chess engine's horrible 
coding style and data structures. I'm doing pretty well so far but 
unfortunately there isn't that much information on some things so I have 
to ask these probably basic questions here. Here are my questions:

1. On single-point eye detection: how is this generally done? I first 
used the definition that we have a single-point eye if a point has only 
our stones as neighbours and at most 1 diagonal neighbour is not our 
stone if in the middle of the board or that all diagonal neighbours are 
ours if on the edge of the board. This was however very slow, and when I 
replaced my definition with the definition found in Pachi(all 
neighbouring stones must be ours, at most 1 enemy stone is our diagonal 
neighbour if in the middle of the board and none if at the edge of the 
board) I get 4x the amount of playouts with longer games. Which one is 
the correct one, or is something else?

2. On playouts: How many light playouts per second on 9x9/19x19 on a 
single thread is considered fast nowadays?

3. On GTP-protocol and final_score: How do you score a board where the 
game hasn't ended(i.e. there are moves left which are legal and don't 
kill off our groups)? Almost all scoring methods require that dead 
stones are removed, and I can't figure out how to do that easily. Or do 
you just assume everything on the board is alive?

Thanks in advance,

Mikko Aarnos

Japanese rule in MC

Hi,

Recently I have tried to use Japanese rule without one point safe margin.
I use Erik and Aja's method. It works pretty well, but this position is
 still diffcult.

 9....X.O..
 8....X.O..
 7....X.O..   Black("X") to play
 6...XXOO..   komi is 6.5
 5...X.O...
 4...X.O...
 3...X.O...
 2...X.O...
 1...X.O...
  ABCDEFGHJ

(;GM[1]SZ[9]RE[B+0.5]KM[6.5]RU[Japanese]
;B[di];W[fi];B[dh];W[fh];B[dg];W[fg];B[df];W[ff];B[de];W[fe]
;B[dd];W[fd];B[ed];W[gd];B[ec];W[gc];B[eb];W[gb];B[ea];W[ga])

Best move is PASS or filling share liberties(F9,F8,F7,E5,E4,E3,E2,E1).
Aya can play it, but its winrate is around 0.50, far from understanding
 this position is easy win for B.
Tentyo no Igo(commercial version of Zen) also returns around 0.50.
Is there good method that can return over 0.80 winrate?

I feel "Do playout and modify score by number of pass" is hard for B +0.5
 win position. Because B has more territory about 7 pt, and W has bigger
 chance to pass in playout. As a result, B winrate is lower than 0.50.

My code is like this.

if ( last_two_move_is_pass_in_tree ) {  // confirmation phase
  pass_w_playout = pass_b_playout = 0;
  playout_length = 0;
}

game_length = record_length + tree_legth + playout_legnth;
pass_w = pass_w_record + pass_w_tree + pass_w_playout;
pass_b = pass_b_record + pass_b_tree + pass_b_playout;

Margin = 0;
if ( (game_length&1) ) {
  if ( first_player_is_white ) Margin = -1;
  else                         Margin = +1;
}

minus = (Margin + pass_w - pass_b);
japanese_score = chinese_score - minus;
double final_score = japanese_score - komi - handicaps;

Without confirmation phase, winrate drops from 0.50 to 0.45.
Aya does not grow tree after consecutive pass in tree. Maybe I need to grow?
 But to do that, I need to have two root positions that have same hash value,
 one is root, and the other is after onconsecutive pass.
