At the end of the game, I believe the normal sequence is: black’s last move, white’s last move, black passes by giving white a stone, white passes by giving black a stone. Then count the score.
If white passes first by giving black a stone, then black passes, white passes, essentially white is giving black two stones. This is fair, because in Japanese rule you lose one point if you place inside your own territory. And white is forced to play the last move (pass a stone or place inside your own, it’s the same thing) in order to make the moves from both sides even.
But on OGS, I realized even if I selected Japanese Rule, white could pass first and black then passes and then we enter the scoring phase. The system only counts prisoners captured in the game, not the 1 and 1 in the passing phase. (or 1 and 2 here as described) This gives white 1 point advantage in this situation.
Was this intended in coding OGS? Or is there something I missed?
Many thanks for your response.
