I'm going to assume it's a complete coincidence that both I as well as my bot are going to play the same person this week.

I hadn't even noticed that. Yes, entirely coincidental.

will ziltoid_eee join the event? Or maybe you need to implement the 2-step 1st Gold move first, I guess?

Okay, time for me to find a forced win Tongue. Hopefully I get lucky and I am either on the winning side and can actually find the forced win, or quad's search isn't strong enough to play perfectly and I can win from the losing side anyways.
 
Edit: Before doing any analysis, my intuition tells me that silver should be able to demonstrate a forced win, since two steps for gold isn't enough to establish an immediate initiative in this case. I hope this is the case, since I am silver this game against a bot. I could be wrong, but I will need to do some analysis to find out.

It's amazing how with so few pieces on the board, perfect play still seems to lead to a fairly balanced game. With decent tactical ability and understanding of the few strategic principles of this type of endgame the games should last at least 10-15 moves. So far in analysis I haven't been able to determine which side has the advantage. This is a little bit comforting for me, but I am still determined to find out the truth.

My bot cannot find a big advantage for either side, not quickly at least...
