There are some strong bot-players on KGS (from 4d to 2K).
I saw pachi, ayamc and even gnugo having dan ranks on KGS. I wonder how to run such a strong bots offline.
I tried gnugo and aya, both programs did not used even 5% of my CPU, made fast moves (about 1/2 sec per move) and played very weak (about 6K, I think). I did not found any options to make them use more CPU.
I tried also to run pachi (over GTP, using gogui). Pachi used 100% (6 cores) of my CPU, a lot of RAM but played on about 4K level. It plays a little bit stronger with gigantic fuseki dictionary, but it does not help much.
So, my question is: Is there way to run strong (2k+) bot locally?
