Can White kill?  

Hikaru79 Assuming it's White's play next, can this shape be killed?

Anonymous: No. Only if there are White stones at a and b, White can kill with White c, Black d, White e.

B2 tenuki  

Joonas Tyystjärvi: I'm quite probably missing something here, but I don't think white has even a ko threat here. After B10, a and b are miai for black, and this looks like fairly silly endgame.


unkx80: Typically B4 is played here. Later, Black a, White b, and Black c, White d, so Black has 6 points.
