Beginner Exercise 182 / Solution

Status of the white group?  

Seems white needs another move here. With this W1, white lives in sente (with respect to black+circle).[1] Without W1 by white, white is short of liberties after black ataris at a.


LukeNine45: Right. Here is the threat played out.

Failure 2  

If this W3, White still dies.

Alive, but smaller  

JoelR: This W1 lives, but with less area than the best solution. If B2 at W3, W3 at B2.

[1] Bill: Saving black+circle is small by comparison. Better to think of this as a gote.
