4-4 point ogeima slide follow up

  Difficulty: Intermediate   Keywords: Tesuji
Corner pattern  

The formation on the left commonly occurs after White plays a wedge on the top. White's stones form a solid base but Black has a tesuji to capture one of White's stones.


B1 is the tesuji. White should give up the stone and take sente with the sequence to B7.

White resists  

W2 offers strong resistance. If white keeps resisting with W8, Black will cut at B9.

B19 at B11 and W20 at B15.  

B11 start a two-stone edge squeeze.

Black captures everything  

After B21 Black captures everything. White is clearly worse off than if she had just given up the stone.
