Black wins. Success.  

War Eagle

unkx80: This answer is perfect, although I am also preparing to accept B3 in the following diagram. If I shifted the diagram several lines down, then B3 below will be the only way to play. ;)

k i.e. see the alternative below


ryouga I don't see why moving it down matters? Originally when I tried to work this out, I played it your way. But his way seems just as good. Is it because White can come around the left side? ...Yes, it is.... I see now. I'm leaving this here for clarification - if I didn't see it someone else won't :)



W6 @ W2


How do you kill black in this case?

Moves 1 to 4  

I think you can kill it like this. White will either connect outside or otherwise capture B1 and win the capturing race. The only other possible variation that I see is with B3 at the other side of W2. In this case, W4 will be on the other side of B1.
