Take any game at the start of the endgame, or somewhere into the endgame.
First, the players are paired and they auction on playing Black. The highest bidder receives the right to play Black and gives his bid as komi. Next they play out the game.
The exercise is interesting for a few reasons:
- Realize how early the endgame begins.
- Get into the habit of counting the score.
- Adapt the endgame strategy to the calculated score.
