Hi,
In the following 9x9 board:
Image

I (black) lost by 11 points.
I'm not sure I understand the way the scored is calculated, because the total area I have is 24, while white has 23.
Does white get +1 for each of my stones in his area? this might explain it.

Thanks!

Yes. The dead stones of yours within his areas are removed from the board and added to his captures. Each capture is +1 point, so he gets that plus the 1 territory. (in Japanese rules)

But you need to also count the other stones captured during the game too

Hi,
In japanese rules,
Black score = Black territory + black's prisoners + white dead stones inside black's territory
White score = same thing (reversed) + komi

In chinese rules
Black score = Black territory + number of black stones on the board
White score = same thing (reversed) + komi + number of handicap stones

In AGA rules
Definition 1:
Black score = Black territory + number of black stones on the board
White score = same thing (reversed) + komi + number of handicap stones minus one
Definition 2:
Black score = Black territory + black's prisoners + white dead stones inside black's territory + pass stones given by White
White score = same thing (reversed) + komi
