Beginner Exercise 219 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise219

W1 is the solution. Note that capturing W1 and W3 gives only a false eye.


Another path where black ends up dead. a and b are miai, as are c and d.


W1 allows B2 to live. (However, if B2 is mistakenly played at a, then White at B2 kills.)

False Eye part 1  

baerrach: I had trouble seeing the false eye, so here are the diagrams.

White can't play at B3 because of damezumari.

JoelR: I wouldn't call this damezumari. It's just the usual principle that capturing 2 doesn't make an eye. By the way, W2 can tenuki.

Bill: The term is connect and die. :)

False Eye part 2  

Now there is no eye
