    1*        0      5.5       11        4       2.5
    2         0      2.5       12        4       0.5

    9         3      0.5       19        6       3.5
  • In the case of a one stone difference in strength, the weakest player takes black and plays first.

Tim HUNT has collected some information based on his experiences with small boards, and presents [ext] several ways of assigning handicap and komi.
