Beginner Exercise 244 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise244

This is a first line large knight's move connection. For this problem, the required diagonal move is B1.


If W2 ataris, then either B3 or a connects. The black+circle stones happen to set up a snapback, so no problems here.


The other diagonal at B1 for the first line large knight's move connection does not work for this problem. W2 can cut the connection.

Failure, continued  

If B3, then W4 is an atari.

togo: And if B5 on W6 (following the connection tesuji), then W6 on B5 with no snapback coming to the rescue of the left bridgehead.

A different failure  

It's tempting to play on the point of symmetry with B1 in the middle, but white can cut with W2 here.
