3454 Enclosure/ Technique 3

Sub-page of 3454Enclosure

jantiff: Without support, it's not easy for White to live there...

Black resists  

B4 denies White the classical ko.


B3 is a nice placement. White dies.

Hence, White should not use this technique as a raw invasion.

Bill: It may have value as a probe.

Black goes for the kill  

W1 makes a ko shape, but B2 plays to kill.

After W9, the ladder (a) and the semeai (b) are miai.

No ladder  

If the ladder does not work, B1 takes the corner.

But first White plays shibori on the right.

White seals the corner  

Then White seals the corner with W2 - W4.

This is generally good for White. Black has lost at least one move. See tewari.
