Beginner Exercise 131 / Attempts

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise131
Black first to live.  

demetria: I don't know if this has a snowball's chance in hell of working, but it seems like B1 makes a connect-and-die then Black can try for another eye at a or b. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

lavalyn: This has a solution? Black is dead. After White at b, Black a is damezumari and the capture of the two whites takes too much time. Conclusion: Black should tenuki.

unkx80: Hi lavalyn, this is not another problem like Beginner Exercise Failed Creation. I am 100% sure that there is a solution. =)

demetria: No need to be rude. Saying {Black first to live} with no hint implies that there is some way to salvage the situation.

At any rate, I thought B1 was a good way to balk white because now if she tries to capture doesn't this happen:

Black first to live.  

and then...

Black first to live.  

with all of White's stones getting captured?

Black first to live.  

Kuolema Lives.
