Beginner Exercise 205 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise205
Nothing fancy...  

There's nothing fancy to do here. If Black simply connects with B1, there is no way for white to save her 5 stones, and thus her group.

  • a is self-atari
  • b is met by a to give black 2 liberties to white's 1,
  • c is met by d or a to capture.
Fancy but wrong  

If you have done a fair amount of problems solving, the diagonal move at B1 may come to mind. However, when White captures two stones with W2, she has enough liberties to capture at a next.
