End of Round 19

Every player managed to play their first move, which is a pass in case of image orange.

The image orange stone at D1 is the only “old” stone without liberties and thus is removed from the board. This gives the “new” stones at E1 and F1 a new liberty, and thus these are not removed.

Any player with 6 stones or less on the board is eliminated at the start of Round 20.
All players enter Round 20 with at least 7 stones, therefore nobody is eliminated.

End of Round 20

Every player managed to play their first move, which is a pass in case of image orange.

Several stones are captured. First of all the stone at C8 is captured. Second, both image@Sanonius’s group of stones around L1 and image@Haze_with_a_Z’s stone at M2 are “old” groups without liberties, and thus are removed. This gives the “new” group at N1 a new liberty, thus this stone remains on the board.

Any player with 6 stones or less on the board is eliminated at the start of Round 20.
image@Sanonius is eliminated this round, since they start with only 5 stones remaining on the board after the capture.
All other players enter Round 20 with at least 7 stones, and therefore are not eliminated.

The new deadline is 2020-11-14T21:00:00Z.

End of Round 23

image@le_4TC and image@PiggyStardust collided on their first move at J12, but both managed to place a stone at their second choice. Meanwhile, image@Haze_with_a_Z collided for their first choice with a preexisting stone, but managed to place their second choice at J12.

image@yebellz and image@Leira both placed their first choice.

Of the stones on the board without liberties, image@le_4TC’s stone at H12 is “old” and thus is removed. This gives a new liberty to image@Haze_with_a_Z’s stone at J12, which remains on the board.

Any player with 8 stones or less on the board is eliminated at the start of Round 24.
All players enter Round 24 with at least 9 stones, therefore nobody is eliminated.

Sorry to be late…

In the absence of a move submission from @Leira, Round 24 will be extended 24 hours.

The new deadline is 2020-11-16T21:00:00Z.

End of Round 24

image@Haze_with_a_Z collided with a preexisting stone for their first move, but managed to place their second choice.
Everyone else played their first choice, which is a pass, for the last time, in case of
image Orange.

The last time, since the orange stones around image G2 have no liberties left, as do the “old” stones at image M3 and image N2. These are removed from the board. The stone at image N3 is “new” and gains liberties from this capture, thus is not removed from the board.

Any player with 8 stones or less on the board is eliminated at the start of Round 25.
Since all orange stones are removed from the board, Orange / @martin3141 is now indeed eliminated from the game. All other players enter Round 25 with at least 9 stones, and therefore are not eliminated.
