You'll find in attachment an interesting case of seki that maybe you don't have in your database. The White string in A11 has 3 liberties, but W must not play in any of them, because then A8 and A10 are miai for kill. Black can play in any of them, but search will not play there, because that would make W obviously alive. That position occured in a game that Crazy Stone lost against gnugo.
