Beginner Exercise 255 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise255

The solution is B1, making miai of a and b.

Main line.  

Specifically, if W2 descends , then B3 and B5 lives.

Be careful, if B5 is greedy and plays at a, then White b removes the second eye.


If W2 makes a placement, then B3 and B5 captures the W2 stone and lives.

Failure 1.  

B1 here is greedy. The placement at W2 makes a and b miai for White.

Failure 2.  

The descent of B1 is also a mistake. After the hane-connect of W2 and W4, Black does not have enough space to form a second eye at the bottom.
