13x13 =169

Now we need to take in account the free x handicap stones given at the start which
give even more advantage to black (bigger area)
In a 5 stones handicap It’s 4 more stones (points) so halved 85+2 points to get for black to win. (85-2 for white)

On 13x13 with 5 or 6 stones handicap
Black needs 87 points
White needs 83 points
With 3 or 4 stones handicap 86 vs 84
Less: 85

2: Black can put the handicap stones where he wants.
