Hi Peter and Kim, thanks for that endgame lecture, but unfortunately you have mistaken something. What you explained is "Deiri" counting or in English "swift value", which is B1-B2 + W1-W2 for B1 = Black's result after Black moves first, B2 = Blacks result after White moves first and vice versa. This kind of counting doesn't take into account the different number of set stones depending on sente or gote. To compare that the Swift value is divided by the Tally (difference in number of set stones). This approach to endgame counting is called "Miai counting" as a satisfactory method to determine the order of moves. Have a good time
