The stones illustrated in response to a position search at Sensei's Library sometimes show as BOTH black and white. I am confused as to what a white stone response refers to when the position query is asking for a black stone response. I would very much appreciate enlightenment. Fred

Why not ask on Senseis Library?

Are you saying that the stone colors are mixed up in the same diagram? That's definitely weird.

Or are the stone colors the opposite in different diagrams? That sounds like what is intended. :)

Thanks for your response Bill. The stone responses I refer to are not in a diagram but are shown under the query diagram with numbers that I think are instances or proportions of use. Also, thanks for the search link which I did not see before. Fred

Are you talking about wildcards?

Anyway, this page may help: https://senseis.xmp.net/?FindPositionPage

The position search at Sensei's Library does not have the concept op asking for a certain color response. It will always report on both black and white follow-up moves from the searched position.
