[computer-go] Chinese rules "positional superko is pretence"

Hi William,

Here's another interesting page: http://senseis.xmp.net/?ChineseRules

Notice the comment of Robert Jasiek at the bottom:  "The positional
superko is pretence and the referees' ko rules are applied in
practice. The latter can be explained by a moderately complex
modification of the Japanese 2003 Rules."

IMO this says it all. 

Kind regards,
