Handicap stones

Three handicap games,

  1. 3 stones handicap with a 1d(Macrophase) as a 3k.
  2. 2 stones with a 3d(tupelo) as a 4k
  3. 8 stones with a 6d(omelette) as a 4k. This game is completed.

Anyway, no complain, just fyi, in case there is a bug.

Links or it didn’t happen.

Thank you.

About the games:

  1. 3 handicap by rank difference 3 is expected
  2. Handicap is reduced because your opponent’s rating has an uncertainity (2369 ± 148) of more than 125. At least I think it’s 125.
  3. You were probably 3k (2.3k) when the game started, so 8 stones would be correct.
