Here are the latest cumulative stats for ParlorBot, which
runs gnubg on FIBS with 2-ply checker play and cube
decisions, 33% reduced:

Number of samples  : 3692   (i.e. number of rated matches played)
Lowest             : 1880.71
Highest            : 2120.74
Mean               : 2002.35
Standard Deviation :   51.70

While the average rating used to be around 2030, there has
been a great deal of wandering from that.  Also I suspect
that a few clever FIBSters have learned to take advantage of
the bot's less-than-perfect evaluation in back games and
holding games.
