I-Spins in SRS

From TetrisWiki

Different rotation systems that approximate SRS apply different wall kicks and floor kicks when the player twists the I tetromino.

Guideline SRS

Games such as Tetris Worlds and Tetris DS are based on the Tetris Guideline, including SRS. They have the following behavior:

..........
...IIII...
..........
..........
..........
..........
...G..SS..
...G.SSJJJ
...G.....J
....I.....
....I.....
....I.....
....I.....
..........
..........
...G..SS..
...G.SSJJJ
...G.....J

Rotated left

..........
..........
..........
..........
..........
....I.....
...GI.SS..
...GISSJJJ
...GI....J

Soft dropped

..........
..........
..........
..........
..........
..........
...G..SS..
...G.SSJJJ
...GIIII.J

Rotated right

But the wall kicks are not symmetric, as the kick up is performed in preference to the kick down when rotating left:

..........
...IIII...
..........
..........
..........
..........
..ZZ..T...
LLLZZ.TT..
L.....T...
.....I....
.....I....

Rotated right

LLLZZITT..
L....IT...

Soft dropped

..........
..........
..........
..........
..........
.....IIII.
..ZZ..T...
LLLZZ.TT..
L.....T...

Rotated left

However, an extra block impedes the choice of the upward kick position:

..........
...IIII...
..........
..........
..........
........G.
..ZZ..G...
LLLZZ.G...
L.....G...
.....I....

Soft dropped

The following can be performed instead:
