FORMULA

a(n)=a(n1)+n2 for n>=3.

G.f.: (1x+x^3)/(1x)^3;
a(n)=n+10^n+C(n1,2). (End)

EXAMPLE

A 5space big eye can be almost filled in 4 moves, after which one takes and has a 4space big eye (5 liberties) left. This gives a total of 4+5 moves for the opponent and 1 for oneself, for de facto 8 liberties.
