I think much of it will be the fact that SlugGo plays at slower time
settings. When you compare the rank of different GNU Go bots on KGS, you
will find that usually those playing at faster time settings will have
higher ranking, since their opponents will make a lot more blunders that
a computer can easiliy exploit.
