How to deal with eternal ko?


In this game I’ve had difficulties calculating score, because of the uncertain situation in the upper left corner. In this game it wasn’t a big deal, because I have already won, but still I’m interested to find out what should be done in situations like this?

The upper left is seki unless someone chooses to play it out during the game.

Edit: Actually the upper left is just a regular seki. There is no opportunity for either player to choose a different result during the game.

The upper left is seki (players cannot capture their opponent’s stones). During the scoring phase, if the automatic score marks the white stones as captured (as it did in this game), you need to click on the white stones to switch the state.
