Captures:
Black has captured 2 White stones
White has captured 0 Black stone

Communal play.  Feel free to enter your name below and play the next stone (try not to join both teams!).

Most recent move marked with (1): so the team to play next is whichever colour doesn't have a stone marked (1) on the board.  When you play, replace the opponents' (1) with a normal piece, place your (1) where you move, and update the $$B / $$W line.

If you wanted to move somewhere different to where someone just moved, you could always copy the board below and see if anyone responds.

White players
Black players
Um, eep. I thought ChrisHowlett was looking for a game against a non-good opponent? IIRC it was Angoel who soundly beat MoonShadow last time... When it was Kitiara who Chris was playing that made a bit more sense, but... are you sure this match is the one you want to be playing? --AC
Don't scare him away!  He's the only person who's done anything here for ages.  --Angoel
I'm slightly amused that my offer to play someone got erased to start this match, but never mind.  I would have joined the smaller team, but they seem to be even already and white has always made a move whenever I look.  --Vitenka (It's relevant, because I'm not a good player at all)
I volunteer to help Chris if he wants! --Gwyntar
Er, good point. I gratefully accept Gwyntar's offer of help. You can have this move :) --CH

a or trouble ensues.  --Vitenka

The way I see things this fight can only be good for black, therefore... --Gwyntar

EDIT: I was wrong :) --Gwyntar
Anyone want to try continuing it from the safer play above?  Though I would just like to say that it doesn't form half as pretty a pattern as the WikiNow has.  It looks like it's about to form a glider.  --Vitenka (Oh!  ConwayGo.  There must be a way.)

A standardish possible move sequence from here.  White has weaknesses at a due to the cutting stone, and because black generally has sente.  However, black is unable to use the 5,5 stone as effectively as desirable - basically, the only advantage got is to provide the weakness at a and to prevent 4 being played at 9, giving black corner space and the possibility of escape to the right.  --Angoel

I was thinking (5,5) was more useful than that, and was wondering if anyone else wanted to play :) --Gwyntar
Oh, it quite possibly is.  However, I don't really know how to exploit it ;), and so the above sequence doesn't really take it into account (the above sequence being just a possible idea of how the shape could develop) --Angoel
