polling the active and skilled players: which opening would you prefer to play with at this site?
1. pro opening — with a 7x7 box of forbidden area for black’s second move
2. swap — with black putting down three stones and white deciding which color to play with
3. swap2 — with black putting down three stones, white putting down two more, and black deciding which color to play with
we could actually have all three. any preferences?
Because you can have an advantage with simple swap if the three stones are spread over a wide space — depending on the location of the three stones you may easily see if white or black has an advantage. Swap2, with two more stones, may neutralize this advantage.
