Player's strength ties neutral site


I don't think it's entirely clear (or at least I was unable to find) what happens when a player site moves on to a neutral site of equal strength. Does the player site disappear, leaving behind a zero strength neutral site?


Yes. To be clear, the site that the piece moved from remains owned by the player, but the site onto which the piece moved becomes a neutral piece with 0 strength.
