BQM 204

    Keywords: Question

In this diagram, Black resigned after White took the ko for the last move. Presumably because he could not find a large enough threat.

If White loses the ko fight, Black makes quite a bit of territory on the top.

It is unclear ( to most players ) whether or not Black lives in the corner if he loses the fight.

Bill: Black can give up the ko and live easily.

Easy life  

Not that that is best play, OC. ;-)

Taking into account the two scenarios: Black lives if he loses; and Black dies if he loses, can someone place a range of values on the ko fight?

Bill: Too much work for me.
