Beginner Exercise 126 / Solution

White captures first  
Even worse for Black  

Author: Confused



If White 1, then black 2 takes the vital point and white has no chance. Authors: Hikaru79 and JoelR.

HolIgor: A little bit more advanced.

White captures first  

White 6pt + 1pt sente yose = 7 pt

Black captures first  

Black 7pt + 1pt sente yose = 8pt

Altogether it is 7.5 points miai. This is the size of a monkey jump.

White is rather secure in the corner. Black is rather secure on the side. Capturing the stones in gote in fuseki or midgame is rather small. This is just a big yose move.

A little bit more advanced yet

A correct shapy move for black  

Take the vital point immediately instead of descending to the edge.
