Big Bot Shoot-out

Recently there was at GammonU a discussion which is stronger overall? Snowie vs Gnu?
Wouldn't it be nice to have some empirical data and not only faith? Till now the only benchmark is the one by Michael Depreli. (Isn't it strange bots in other games, e.g., chess have such benchmarks, but this off topic...). Imagine a person would setup a benchmark between the following Bots:
- BGB 2.0.9d, Experte/3-ply
-JF 3.5, Level 7 with Factor 1000
-GNU 0.14.3, Grandmaster for Checkerplay and Cube
-Snowie 4.5, Precise
doing 1000 25-point matches between each combination of them.
What would you guess will be the outcome?
The answer comes tomorrow.
