[Computer-go] Hex is solved ?

Thanks.

Generally is good if it's in a reputable journal or conference. Not
everyone can do that, but if it's a new and interesting result of interest
to more than 100 people, probably you can. There are peer-reviewed
electronic journals, for instance.

It's also unclear what the formal statement of the claim is. Having an
efficient solution from an arbitrary board position for an arbitrary
boardsize isn't credible, as John pointed out. (And a version of that
result, which was published in acta informatica, isn't mentioned or
referenced on the hex page mentioned as far as I can find - it would be a
much bigger result than an *inefficient* algorithm, which is fairly easy.).

I allowed my self to remove the link from the wikipedia page as non pair
