To evaluate the Black follower, let's look at its Black and White followers.

Black plays twice  

B3 reverses to a position worth +3 (chilling to +1).


[Diagram]
White responds  

W4 reverses to a position worth +1 1/2. (The chilled value is the same, since each player has made the same number of plays.)


The Black follower, chilled, is

                    { 1 | 1 1/2} = 1 1/4

So the original position, chilled, is

                    { 1 1/4 | 1 1/2} = 1 3/8
