Beginner Exercise 266 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise266

After B1, black is alive with 8 points of territory. (It looks like 10 points right now, but later, as the outside liberties are filled in, black will need to capture the two white+circle stones.) White can't kill: if white at a then black plays b.

Less good: B5 at white+circle  

Black needs to play B5 at white+circle to make sure of the second eye. This way, black only has 5 points of territory.


If black plays B1, then white can kill the corner. Black only has false eyes at W1 and at white+circle.
