Impossible score!

We have no clue what happend! Check out our end game. What is our score?!? Looking forward to your response. X

The Ko in the bottom left corner really should be settled before this ends.

If you don’t know how to score… Keep putting stones on the board, and use a scoring system that doesn’t penalize that. Eventually, you’ll get to a point where it’s easy to score.

Assuming this was actually a 13x13 game played on a 19x19 board and no komi or handicap, I count about 53 for White and 41 for Black for W+12.

If Black to move, take the ko and the score goes to 45. White could have 54 if they get to play the upper left available point first.

Looks like White win regardless.

Well I was mistaken calling that a ko in the lower left. But there are still many dame points on the board, and quite a few things that could happen. I think regardless of the outcome it’s good practice for beginners to fill all the dame points before they go to counting. Not to mention it’s the easiest way to count.
