Beginner Exercise 225 / Attempts

White to play.  

Gerhard The monkey jump would do?

Large Monkey jump  


Other variation for Black  

I think there is now no way for black to make two eyes...

unkx80: Yes, monkey jump is the solution.

No ko.  

Gogobera: B2 and B4 look to make a second eye, forcing W3 and W5. I initially thought black could make ko here, after white captures at a. However, white's move is at b. If black captures, white throws in at W1. Black captures at b followed by white a, leaving black one eye only.

White fails, giving black ko.  
No ko  

symplicity: There's not even a ko in the "failure" diagram. This is what the position in the previous diagram actually looks like after black's last move. White just connects at a.
