# Open problems

From HexWiki

- Are there cells other than a1 and b1 which are theoretically losing first moves?

- Is it true that for every cell (defined in terms of direction and distance from an acute corner) there is an
*n*such that for any Board of size at least*n*that cell is a losing opening move?

- Conversely, is it true that, for example, c3 is a winning first move on every Hex board of size at least 5?

- Sixth row template problem: Does there exist an edge template which guarantees a secure connection for a piece on the sixth row?

- Is the center hex on every Hex board of odd size a winning opening move?

- Two further open problems are posed by Jory in the Little Golem forum.
