Clamp Connection Comparison
What happens when Black plays first?
Black has one more point of territory and one more captured stone: Black wins.
What happens when White plays first?
Since whoever plays first wins, the difference game shows that sometimes the solid connection will be better and sometimes Dieter's defense. :-)
Truc: In CGT terms the canonical form of these two positions is zero and star, from left to right, respectively. This tells us a lot about the correct defense when there are other infinitesimals on the board.
2 || 0 | -Big
Truc: Erm, yes, I assumed the sente would get played out and the positions would get chilled to zero and star (left to right). I was trying to say that if the rest of the board adds up to * we should play Dieter's defense, and if the rest of the board is zero then we should play the usual connection.
