7x7 Board

7x7 board,empty  

7x7 is an extremely small board, used a lot on KGS. The action is very fast, and Black tends to do best on tengen at the opening. -TimBrent

A group of strong players claim to have found best play on 7x7

Solving 7x7

According to a [ext] Chinese-language article cited on [ext] Wikipedia, the 7x7 board has been weakly solved -- ie. not all legal positions have been analysed, but paths for Black to win the game against any defence have been found.

The citation to the article says:

"The 7x7 solution is only weakly solved and it's still under research,

1. the correct komi is 9 (4.5 stone);

2. there are multiple optimal trees - the first 3 moves are unique - but within the first 7 moves there are 5 optimal trees;

3. There are many ways to play that don't affect the result."
