Don't feel so bad. GnuBG is capable of crushing world-class human players and 
is insanely good at optimising its positions. I have been playing it for years, 
and only once have it beaten it in a 7-point match, something so rare, I 
tweeted about it (I consider myself to be merely a reasonable club standard).

If you want to learn, use it to analyse your play after the match. I learned a 
lot that way. I found the 6x6 temperature map especially enlightening.

If you want a more equal opponent, dial its intelligence down.
