Swap2 Boat-Pente Game from Board Game Arena (BGA)
Posted: Jan 21, 2023, 3:36 AM

I'm using Pente.org interface to study a game from board game arena (BGA). This was swap2+ boat variant, and player1(white) did an opening proposal for the first 3 stones. Player2(black) accepted proposal/colors, and did first turn on L10. Player 1 and 2 are both ~beginner players, which is why we wanted to take a second look to study this game. Won by Player 2 via captures.

17. O14 nets white a 3rd cap. Looks better to me than 17. O10.

My understanding of how the game could have gone differently based on Watsu's input:

Lots of options for white after the 3rd cap is made, but that one is definitely valid.
