Tonight's the night!

AlphaGo vs. Lee Sedol!  The first match is tonight!  It's so exciting, possibly the biggest moment in Go in our lifetime.  Who will win?  AlphaGo beat Fan Hui 5-0, but I'm sure Lee Sedol can also beat Fan Hui 5-0.  Maybe Lee Sedol will lose a game or two and then figure out how to beat AlphaGo...  If that's the case, will AlphaGo then be able to learn how to beat Lee Sedol?  More generally, how will AlphaGo change the game?  What will we learn from it about how to play?

Unfortunately for us here on the east coast of the U.S., the game starts at 11 pm, which is past my bedtime.  (We are definitely not the center of this world.)  But I am hoping to join our club for game review on Wednesday evening.
