Beginner Exercise 185 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise185

The solution is the snapback of B1. First of all note that by the very nature of snapback, even if White a captures the B1 stone, B1 will recapture the White stones, so the B1 stone will still be there. Knowing that the B1 stone will not go away, we now note that the white+circle stone is caught in a connect-and-die: if White b, then Black c.

Solution (W4 at white+circle)  

White has a resistance at W2, but B3 captures...


... and this is a capture two, recapture one where B5 recaptures. So White has no eye here.
