Pro Go-Moku is a variation of Gomoku, and it was designed to eliminate the advantage black has by going first in traditional Gomoku.  It does this by restricting where black can put his or her pieces down on the first two turns:
  • Black's very first move must be in the center of the game board
  • White's first move can be anywere.
  • Black's second move must be outside the five-by-five area in the center of the game board.
  • White's second move, and all moves after that, can be anywhere.

Pro Go-Moku is also played on a slightly bigger board (15x15) than regular Gomoku (13x13).
