THE 9TH CSA WORLD COMPUTER SHOGI CHAMPIONSHIPS
==============================================
March 18th & 19th 1999
The Sheraton Grand Hotel, Tokyo
This year the Computer Shogi Association (CSA) organised the World Computer
Shogi Championships for the 9th time. From its modest start with only six
programs in 1990, it has become a major event on the shogi calendar. For
one thing, the results are decisive for the sales of the programs that
are available commercially. Fortunately, even though a lot of money is at
stake, there is always a friendly (but tense) atmosphere.
This year the number of participants again increased over last year. For a
while it even looked like the tournament would clear the magic number of 50
participants. Unfortunately, in the weeks before the tournament the number
of entries, which had started at 54, dropped quickly and in the end there
were 40 programs participating. Still, this was five more than last year,
making this the biggest computer shogi tournament ever. Most notable
absentee was the program M-Brain, which reached the finals last year,
beating the strong Kanazawa Shogi.
There was also a small increase of the number of foreign programs. This year
there were four foreign entries. Frontrunner was of course the program
Shotest by English programmer Jeff Rollason, which ended third in last
year's tournament. My program Spear had not fared as well last year and had
to start from the bottom of the qualification. The new foreign entry was
the program Shocky by the Fin Pauli Misikangas. He was not able to come to
Tokyo, but his program was operated by the Englishman Steve Nichols from
Multishell, the company that is planning to issue a commercial version of
the Shocky program in the near future. The final foreign entry was Silver
Shogi, made by a North Korean company called KCC. This company also made
Silver Igo, a strong Go program and therefore it was expected that Silver
Shogi might do very well.
Qualification Rounds
====================
With so many programs participating, the CSA had some serious problems to
find a good formula to fit the tournament in two days. In the end they had
decided to leave the round robin final tournament of eight programs on the
second day intact. To get from 40 programs to 5 final entries on the first
day (the three best programs from last year: IS Shogi, Kanazawa Shogi and
Shotest were automatically qualified for the finals), a very tough
playing schedule was chosen for the first day. There would be two qualification
stages. In the first qualification round all new entries and a few of last
year's entries would play a five round Swiss tournament. The top five
programs would qualify for the next qualification round. This second
qualification round would be a seven round Swiss tournament with the top
five programs qualifying for the finals on the second day.
This meant that some of the programs had to play almost non-stop from 8:30am
until after 9:00pm. Having the rule that all programs had to be able to play
by serial cable made the schedule a little easier, since all that the
programmers had to do was to start up the game, sit back and relax (if
possible). Surprisingly, there were almost no problems with the serial
connection; the code provided by the CSA worked very well. It also turned
out that most of the programs used much less time that the maximum of 20
minutes for the first qualification round and 25 minutes for both the second
qualification round and the finals. Still, the general feeling was that the
schedule might be a little hard and the CSA will probably change the
tournament system next year. Adding a third day to the tournament is a
possibility.
First Qualification Round
-------------------------
The tournament was opened at 8:00am by the chairman of the CSA, Professor
Kotani of the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. The Japanese
Shogi Federation was represented by Ouchi, a 9-dan professional.
Most of the eyes in the qualification round were of course on Silver Shogi.
It did as well as was expected, clearing the first qualification round with
a perfect 5-0 score.
The Finnish program Shocky was a positive surprise. It started with three
wins and would have qualified for the next stage if there had not been a
bug in the time control, which made it lose against my program Spear in
the fourth round. When Shocky was running out of time, Spear had a very
bad position and I might have considered accepting a draw if that would
not have ended all my hopes for qualification. Unfortunately both Shocky
and Spear lost in the final round, which meant that Shocky ended sixth and
Spear ended seventh, just outside the five qualification spots.
The programs that went through to the next qualification round were Sakura,
Silver Shogi (both with 5-0 scores), Deep Purple, M-R (both 4-1) and Nazoteki
Dengi (3-2 with the highest sum of opponents score). All except the last
program were first time entries. I was quite impressed by the Sakura
program, which blew away Spear straight from the opening.

Second Qualification Round
--------------------------
The second qualification round was used to decide the five programs that
would join the three seeded programs IS Shogi, Kanazawa Shogi and Shotest.
In this second qualification round also three formers winners of the
tournament, YSS (1997), Morita Shogi (1991) and Eisei Meijin (1990). YSS
was the hot favourite to qualify for the finals, since its commercial
version AI Shogi 3 is the strongest commercial shogi program on the market.
For some strange reason it only ended in fifth place last year. An unexpected
fluke that might have been caused by some tuning errors in the final build-up
to last year's tournament. YSS performed as expected and qualified for the
finals without losing a single game. Two years ago YSS also came from the
preliminary rounds and remained undefeated throughout the tournament. Would
this year be the same scenario?
Another program that was frequently talked about before the tournament was
Kakinoki Shogi. This program has been in all the finals since 1990, has been
runner-up four times, but has never taken first place. The commercial version
of the program was also considered very strong and most other programs had
big trouble getting a good winning percentage against it in test games.
Kakinoki Shogi cleared the qualification with a very good looking 6-1 score,
but it was already clear that the program was not as strong as expected.
Against Eisei Meijin and Silver Shogi the program had a position that was
clearly lost. Against Silver Shogi it even needed a problem with the time
control of the first year program to finally win the game on time in a lost
position.
The happiest man around on this day was without doubt Yoshimura, the programmer
of Eisei Meijin. Last year he missed the finals by one SOS point and this
time it seemed for a long time that history would repeat itself. If
Kakinoki Shogi would have lost against Silver Shogi and Tanchou would
have won, then Eisei Meijin might again have missed the final. Yoshimura,
who needed to get to the final to help his company which has been hit hard
by the Asian recession, let out a cry of joy when Silver Shogi lost on time.
The fourth program to get to the finals was Sougin. This was a bit of
a surprise, since the program did not give the impression to be improved much
over the version that entered last year. It might have had some advantage
because of the pairing system used, since it did not meet any of the top three
programs. I think the pairing system might be a discussion point for next
year's tournament as well.
The final program to clear the qualification rounds was Silver Shogi.
This was a big surprise, since it is a first time entry and now and again
gave the impression that there were some important problems with the
program. For example, in the game against S1.4 there seemed to be an
error in the serial connection, leading to an illegal move. After long
discussions with the arbiters, who were unable to spot the exact problem,
the S1.4 team lead by Professor Noshita generously allowed the move to be
taken back and play to continue. Silver Shogi also had problems with time
control, running out of time against both Hyper Shogi and Kakinoki Shogi.
However, despite these problems and a strange playing style in the opening
and early middle game, it was a program that avoided obvious mistakes and
was very hard to beat. This would become clear on the second day.
Disappointing was the result of Morita Shogi. This program has been in the
finals since the computer shogi championships were first held in 1990. It
won the second tournament, was runner-up once and finished third in four
tournaments. It might be that Morita's recent wedding interfered with the
tournament preparations.

The Finals
==========
The round robin tournament on the second day between the best eight programs
was played under much more relaxing circumstances. The first round started
at 9:40am, and with only eight teams left, there was not so much carrying
around of big computers going on. The games of the finals were commented by
the professionals Mushano (6-dan) and Katsumata (4-dan). Also, Kosaku, editor
of the weekly Shogi magazine Shukan Shogi and a top amateur player, gave
comments on the games. The tournament is drawing more spectators every year,
leading to big crowds around the monitors. It is therefore a bit unfortunate
that most programmers did not put some more effort in the user interface
(perhaps trying to hide their programming secrets?). An exception was
Kanazawa Shogi which had a large screen with big pieces that made it
easy to watch the game even from a distance. Since there were only two of
the four games commented on the demonstration boards, this was a great
service to the spectators.
I followed the finals with the Shotest program, explaining the game in
progress to Jeff Rollason, who is only a beginner at the game. Since the
commercial version of the program (called Otosan2) was not very strong,
Shotest was not considered to be a favourite in this tournament. However,
I knew that the program had improved a lot since last year and might actually
have a chance to become the first non-Japanese winner this time. Last year
Shotest was one of the surprises of the tournament and there was no pressure.
This year would be much different.
This was also true for IS Shogi, the program made by a team of students from
the prestigious Tokyo University, which won the tournament last year. The
commercial version of the program also did not come close to the strength
of last year's tournament version. Furthermore, the team had been
geographically split up, with team leader Tanase quitting Tokyo University
to work full-time at the program, team member Nagai leaving the team and
Kishimoto also leaving Tokyo University to write his master's thesis at
another university. They too had to deal with the pressure of being
favourites instead of underdogs. They made no secret of needing last
minute preparations, which were carried out in the tournament hall during
the qualification rounds.
It was also clear that Kanazawa Shogi would do very well. The program is a
legend in computer shogi. It did not participate in the first tournament, but
won four of the other tournament and got second place three times. Never
getting lower than second place is an amazing record. YSS would of course
also be a contender based on its perfect performance in the qualification.
Kakinoki Shogi and Eisei Meijin were expected to fight for the important
third place, which would mean automatic qualification for next year's
finals. Silver Shogi and Sougin were not expected to win many games.
There was one big upset in the first round: YSS lost to Eisei Meijin. In the
second round Eisei Meijin again beat a favourite: IS Shogi. Eisei Meijin
finally fell in the third round at the hands of Kanazawa Shogi. Kanazawa
Shogi was the only program with three wins after three rounds, since Silver
Shogi caused a major upset by beating Shotest. YSS lost again, this time to
Kakinoki Shogi and that seemed to end all hopes for a tournament victory.
However, in round 4 YSS beat Kanazawa Shogi straight from the opening and
things were suddenly unclear again. After round 4, IS Shogi, Kanazawa Shogi
and Shotest (bouncing back by beating Eisei Meijin from a lost position),
were leading with 3-1. These three programs were followed by YSS, Eisei
Meijin and Kakinoki Shogi with 2-2.
In round 5 leaders IS Shogi and Shotest played to stay in the championship
race. It was a long struggle, with Shotest having an overwhelming position
for most of the game. However, IS Shogi kept wriggling for counter chances
and finally succeeded to find a hole in the Shotest defence. Kanazawa Shogi
beat Kakinoki Shogi with a nice mate that was 21 moves long, surprising the
commenting professionals since the game was over in a flash while they were
still discussing which side had the better position. Silver Shogi showed
that it deserved to be in the finals by beating Eisei Meijin.
Round 6 saw IS Shogi dropping out of the lead with a loss against YSS. Also,
the Shotest hopes of a tournament victory were ended with a crushing defeat
against Kanazawa Shogi. So, with one round to go, Kanazawa Shogi was leading
with a 5-1 score. IS Shogi and YSS followed with 4-2; Shotest, Eisei Meijin,
Kakinoki Shogi at 3-3; Silver Shogi at 2-4; and Sougin at 0-6. Kanazawa Shogi
seemed to be in a very good position, but the tournament rules stated that in
case of a tie the total number of wins of defeated opponent's would decide
the winner. This meant that there were actually three programs that could
still win. If Kanazawa Shogi would win the final game against IS Shogi, it
would be the clear winner of the tournament. If IS Shogi would win, the
winner would depend on the result of the game between YSS and Shotest. If
YSS would win that game, it would win the tournament. If Shotest would win,
IS Shogi would be the overall winner. The stage was set for an exciting final
round.
YSS against Shotest was the first game to finish. It was a strange
game in which YSS lost a silver for a knight very early on. After that,
both programs played some strange moves, surprisingly most of these were
played by YSS. In the end, Shotest won quite comfortably. This meant that
the winner of the 9th World Computer Shogi Championships would be the winner
of the game between Kanazawa Shogi and IS Shogi. This game will probably
become one of the famous games in computer shogi. It certainly was the best
fight I have seen two programs play and was literally decided in the final
seconds. Like in the game against Shotest, IS Shogi was again in big trouble
for most of the game, but managed to hang in there and make things very
difficult. It took a lot of moves and a lot of time to make progress and
Kanazawa Shogi was getting dangerously close to the maximum time limit of
25 minutes per game. It even entered the stage where only three seconds per
move was taken, allowing almost no time for search. Even so, it managed to
get to the opponent's king and create a mating threat against which there
was no defence. IS Shogi recognised this and resigned with Kanazawa Shogi
having only 34 seconds left! Kanazawa is always following the games of his
program tense but stoic, but this time I saw him celebrating his victory
openly.
So, Kanazawa Shogi extended its brilliant record in the World Computer
Shogi Championships by becoming champion for the fifth time. Second place
was for YSS. Shotest surprisingly managed to clinch the coveted third spot.
It had the same SB score as Eisei Meijin, but had won the head-to-head.
Shotest will therefore be automatically qualified for the finals again
next year. Yoshimura was a little disappointed that Eisei Meijin did
not get third place, but he must be happy with the overall result of his
hard work. The real disappointment was in the IS Shogi camp. They came
very close to winning the tournament for the second year in a row, but had
to settle for fifth place in the end. This shows how close the tournament
was this year. Silver Shogi proved itself as a potential challenger in
the coming years with a 3-4 score, edging Kakinoki Shogi for sixth place.
Sougin ended last, not able to win a single game, despite having good
chances in most of its games.

Conclusions
===========
The World Championships Computer Shogi get more interesting every year. This
time around there were seven programs which had a chance of beating each other.
In the end it looked like a comfortable victory for Kanazawa Shogi, but
if the results of the final round would have been different, it might even
have ended in third place.
It is hard to evaluate the absolute strength of the programs, since they still
play quite a number of ``computer'' moves. However, I think it takes at least
a strong 1-dan player to beat the strongest programs. That being said, there
is still a lot of room for improvement and the programs get a lot stronger
every year. This year, the Eisei Meijin program had prepared a special
sacrifice attack in the middle game, which was very successful. Adding
knowledge about good attacking formations and how to use them might be very
interesting. Also, automatic preparation of the opening book might improve
the programs considerably. Shotest already did that for this tournament
by playing more than 40,000 games on 12 machines to automatically spot
weaknesses in the opponent's piece development.
In his final speech, Shukan Shogi editor Kosaku even said that the programs
might have improved by three handicap levels in the past year. This might
be a little too much, but I have been closely following Shotest for two
years now and I know that the program has improved a lot since last year.
In last year's tournament I commented the games of Shotest without looking
at the variations and evaluation it produced. This year I paid more attention
after noticing a couple of times that Shotest evaluation and variations were
more accurate than my own analysis. If a program that is so much better than
last year can only manage to get the same result, this means that the other
programs have improved a lot as well.
Last year I was a little pessimistic about the strength of the top programs.
I am now pretty sure that strong amateur level is within reach of the current
programming methods. It is unclear how far beyond that it is possible to go.
Most of the top programmers do not want to make a prediction on the date when
a computer program will beat the world champion or predict a date far into
the future (I heard 2050 mentioned a couple of times). I am impressed with
the improvement in playing strength every year. The CSA World Computer
Championships is clearly pushing the programmers. How high will the bar be
next year?
