A question: Is solved the conect 4 in 8x8 board ¿Which is the theoretical result?
No, I’m almost positive the 8x8 board has NOT yet been solved. I’ve never come across or read anything about it being solved. The 7x6 board, yes, which is a win for the first player. But not 8x8.
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the 8x8 board was a win for the 2nd player. I’d be interested in hearing if some of the stronger 8x8 players feel the same way.
Ed – I tend to agree. I also have the impression that in games between experienced players the second player has a higher win rate.
