Thanks to tournament director Dr. Klaus Fluegge whose commitment made it possible to play some matches. MyGoFriend played two games against a former 4d player, Siegmar Steffens. Theses games took place under regular human tournament conditions, no handicap, one hour time for each side. One win and one loss confirm the actual kgs-ranking of MyGoFriends desktop version called "MyGoFrndPc". Also, present high dan players confirmed this assessment.
MyGoFriend played on a three year old notebook with an i7 cpu, 3,33 ghz.
