Berlekamp came up with the term, count, to cover both mean values of finite combinatorial games and mast values of kos and superkos.


Ok, now it is clear (except that I need to study mast values in general).

Kano's example is not exactly miai because, even without ko threat play, playing at C19 can sometimes be correct and did win FJ Dickhut a German Championship game.


Yes, Kano also assumes that Black cannot win the ko in the corner.


My mistake, I think. :oops: If Black plays C-19, no seki, no ko. The right play to make seki or the corner ko, I now think, is the sagari, E-19. Here is an sgf that explains the variations. Maybe I made a mistake, but I don't think so. Points are marked with circles, captured stones and places where stones have been captured are marked with triangles.

Why is D19 an »obvious error«? It seems to me that both the ko and the seki are worse results for White. What am I overlooking?

Because Kano assumes that the position is miai.
