DeepZen reached 9 dan (Go)

Everyone is talking about AlphaGo / AlphaZero but I just realized that another Go program reached 9 dan in 2017 : Zen or Deep Zen

It won a computer tournament and beat number 1 japanese player Iyama Yuta 9d, that seems quite significant.

A way to compare the success of the program by Google Deepmind.
