These rules are not authentic Mig-mang rules it seems. Gundru 
and Mig-mang is probably the same. I had however misunderstood 
the rules. Capture of L-shaped styructures can occur all over the 
board. This makes the capture capability even more similar to Go. 
Please have a look on below link, at the last diagram.
