AGA rules treat it as a pass: "Illegal Moves: An illegal move is one violating the rules. If a player makes an illegal move, it shall be taken back, treated as a pass, and a pass stone exchanged."

Apparently this isn't true for the official EGF (taken back if noticed within three moves) and AGA rules (taken back, treated as a pass).

comment What makes a cooperative game require multiple players?
In my experience a strong player can easily keep track of several times the state as a weak player and think of moves much faster.

comment What makes a cooperative game require multiple players?
As I read the question it's all about preventing/discouraging one player from controlling multiple characters/seats. So the only part of your answer that addresses the intent of the question is "would feel really weird".

comment 4-4 high approach joseki incomplete?
Monkey jumping and blocking at 4-2 are big endgame moves (a monkey jump is approximately 9 points in sente), but in the opening there are generally bigger/more urgent moves.

@Djaian At least on KGS the point(s) blocked by ko are marked with a rectangle.
