So, no move yet from @Maharani

Shall I extend the round one more day?

The alternative is interpreting the lack of a move as a pass.

  • Yes
  • No

I don’t have any replacement players ready either… I’ll decide based on the poll in one hour what course to take.

Maybe if Maharani submits a move sometime tomorrow, you can end the round directly once you see the submission? The deadline for the next move would still be the day after, but it would be nice to be able to start thinking about/discussing the next move earlier.

Im so sorry everybody. If the poll ends with all Yes, I will submit a move tonight (within the next 7 hours or so). I’m also backing le_4TC’s suggestion.

Well, let’s do that, then.

End of Round 14

image@Sanonius and image@Haze_with_a_Z chose exactly the same three moves in the same order, and thus collided for all of their choices and failed to place a stone. All other players managed to place a stone at their first choice.

The stones at F10 and J1 are the only stones without liberties and thus are removed from the board.

Any player with 3 stones or less on the board is eliminated at the start of Round 15.
All players enter Round 15 with at least 4 stones, therefore nobody is not eliminated.

I see no choice but to turn against Haze. I will play at J8.

End of Round 15

image@Sanonius and image@Haze_with_a_Z once again collided with each other for their first two moves, but this time both managed to play their third choice. Meanwhile image@PiggyStardust and image@martin3141 collided with their first choices as well, but both managed to play at their second choice. All other players managed to place their first choice.

There are two groups without liberties on the board: the group around J2 from image@Sanonius and the single stone at K2 from image@Haze_with_a_Z. Since K2 was placed this round, and none of the stones of the J2 group were placed this round, image@Sanonius’s group is an “old” group and gets removed before the removal of image@Haze_with_a_Z’s group is considered. Due to the removal of the “old” J2 group, the “new” group K2 gains liberties, and thus will not be removed from the board.

Any player with 4 stones or less on the board is eliminated at the start of Round 16.
All players enter Round 16 with at least 5 stones, therefore nobody is not eliminated.

Still no move again… :confused:

I’ve asked some people if they can be a replacement, but I haven’t found one yet.

Maybe we could give @Maharani another 12 hours and then consider it a pass?

I want to remind everybody that changing the submitted moves is allowed within the time frame of a round. In order to keep the game going I recommend submitting moves early on, then change them later if necessary.

I got reply from @Leira, who is willing to substitute. Could everyone who is in a private conversation with @Maharani add @Leira to their conversations?

@Maharani will be added to the Kibitz Garden, and thus is no longer allowed to discuss the game with any of the players.

We will progress to the next round 2020-11-04T21:00:00Z.
