Ambient Temperature

    Keywords: Theory

The ambient temperature is the temperature of the rest of the board outside the play or plays in focus, for instance, a ko fight. It is an abstraction, roughly equal to the miai value of the largest play not in focus.

The ambient temperature may affect the local play. In the case of Ko Threat - Rule of Thumb, it figures in the estimate of the ko exchange.
