Game- Poof Pente: karlw vs. watsu 09/03/2008
Posted: Sep 9, 2008, 5:55 AM




This game had a pretty interesting finish despite my being on the ropes for most of it. The database version of it will look a bit different, since the db doesn't poof stones as will sometimes happen in the actual poof games. Here's the position just before the end:



Karl was threatening a win on his next move, but I gave him an opportunity to make a mistake and lose instead. Of course, he didn't, but in a speed game he might well have.




Capturing @ L10 in the above position would have lost the game 12-10 for Karl... so of course he won with L6 instead




Retired from TB Pente, but still playing live games & exploring variants like D, poof and boat

Very interesting ending

Just wanted to point out that the game view below does show poofs so there probably isn't a need to show the final 2 positions. (The game database still doesn't show them though)

Pente Rocks!
