[Pachi] rate of change of score in handicap games

pasky,

I have been playing, observing and studying high handicap games for more than 6 months.

I dont have a settled and clear opinion as yet, but perhaps something like:
score remains constant, until mid-game and then deteriorates exponentially?
obviously early series of blunders effects this, but is unusual.

the recent game attached, I felt was amazingly even in tempo, no capture and white gradually gains ascendency.
for this reason I felt it might be useful for rating or testing score methodology, and hence help deriving rate of change over game.

white is 8 dan, ignore last few moves, as this is black swan-song.

best
