Sen Ni Sen

    Keywords: Culture & History, Tournament

先二先 (sen ni sen) is a Japanese go term describing the handicap in a series of matches between two players - like a jubango, where one player takes Black in two games out of three and a two stone handicap in the other game.

In the older system of pro handicapping, this was considered correct for players three dan levels apart. [1]

Used in jubango and the discontinued Oteai.

[1] On average, sen-ni-sen gives Black a 5/6 move's advantage.
