It looks rather similar to an outline of North Carolina.

Yeah, probably picked the wrong size of stones.

This would’ve been my guess, but you beat me to it :stuck_out_tongue:

After layering them on top of each other, I’m pretty sure it is an outline of North Carolina:

Cool trick, sadly not applicable for island nations. :stuck_out_tongue:

I have no idea what’s going on in that other thread :stuck_out_tongue: , but our map is like this

I know there are much worse cases than this on the map, where every separate goban part would be a ponnuki, at most :-P.

(maybe not island nation, anyway if the term is wrong that’s what I meant :woman_shrugging: )

I would “like” your post if I could, but it seems like I ran out of daily “likes” due to the publication of the detective go kibitz thread :confused:

My point earlier was that less experienced players playing as black will not be able to fully capitalize on the first-play advantage like a very experienced player can. Should two 20kyus use the same komi as two 3-dans? Is the purpose of komi to “level the playing field” for theoretical perfect play, or “level the playing field” for real-world play?

This point has been discussed extensively in one of the threads about komi. Koba (IIRC) and I have both talked about it
