Beginner Exercise 179 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise179

The objective of this problem is to introduce the technique of W1, which captures the black+circle stone. It also ensures the life of the White group.

Solution - main line  

If B2 pushes in, then W3 is the standard second line capture, which ensures an eye for White.

Solution - if black cuts  

Black attempting to cut with B2 leaves him with a capturing race he can't win.


Simply connecting with W1 leaves a play open at B2, making miai of a and b for connection, so we can't capture the stone.
