Oakfoam is a home-grown computer Go player. It is coded by Francois van Niekerk with help from Steve Kroon and is under active development. It started playing on KGS today where it currently offers to play 9×9 games with 5 min absolute time on a first-come-first-served basis.
From its first day it looks to be about 5k. Be sure to look for it in the “Computer Go” room with the account name “oakfoam” and challenge it to a game! Remember that it uses Chinese scoring and not Japanese scoring.
