Book Solution  

Anonymous: I don't see why white would play W2 in the above solution. I would have expected something like this as the solution. a and b are miai for the kill. If W4 at b, then B5 at a.

togo: Indeed, this is one white ko-threat more than in the book solution. On the other hand in tsumego the displayed opponent's plays are not necessarily the best ones.


Anonymous: For that matter, white seems to die with this continuation as well. I suppose the best solution is the one that leaves the fewest ko threats for white.

togo: That's right, but both B3 after that W2 have one remaining threat.

Anonymous2: But the second B3 leaves a smaller ko threat. (;
