Hi Adam,

we have no significant numbers regarding bot duells. There was a "bot shootout", a set of 3000 25p matches each between Snowie, GNU Backgammon, BGBlitz and Jellyfish set up by Torsten Schoop once, but I have no details regarding the settings.

In my personal opinion Snowie and Gnubg are about equal (with different strengths and weaknesses), BGBBlitz strongly catching up, maybe also on the same level now.

Jellyfish didn't participate at the Computer Olympiads because the company doesn't exist
anymore afaik. I can't speak for Snowie (or Oasya).

Firstly, thanks for such a great program.
I'm sure that the folks at gnubg headquarters run tests where gnubg, Snowy and Jellyfish are left overnight to fight it out. So I'm sure you know by now what, for example, is the expected amount of money that gnubg makes or loses when playing a single money game for $1 a point against Snowy, when they are both allowed to average 1 second per move on the same machine, or something like that. Why not publish these statistics? I note that Snowy and Jellyfish don't enter the Computer Games Olympiads, so I'm guessing that they run these simulations, and they know that they would probably lose. Or maybe it's very close, and they think that they would lose more sales by losing than they would gain by winning, since their measure is real money.
