Aunt Beast recently confirmed the WGOSA analysis that 11- 1(12)1[2-3]
is a P-position. Therefore, 11-spot misere sprouts is a win for Left.
This is consistent with both the AJS Misere Sprouts Conjecture and the
Hudson Conjecture ("for n > 9, Left wins in misere sprouts iff n
divided by 6 leaves a remainder of 3, 4, or 5."
