Go rules

Thibault, I have searched for "go rules" but cannot find anywhere on FICGS where all the rules are spelled out, komi, passing, etc. What is the standard komi for our games?

Hello Don.

I just updated the 'Help' page, to find easily the good links.

Playing rules for Go (2006 september 16) : "Rules for Go are chinese rules, as defined by the Chinese Weiqi Association. (...) Scoring method is area scoring with chinese counting. Positional superko rule apply. Komi is 7.5 points."

Feel free if you have any question.
