Beginner Exercise 268 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise268

The key thing in this problem is not to connect in response to the black+circle atari. Rather, White should connect underneath with W1 and W3, keeping the white+circle group safe and hence killing the entire Black group. If B2 at W3, then White plays at B2 instead.


If W1 connects, then B2 wins the capturing race against the white+circle group, by three liberties to two.


The rather funky-looking W1 is a step in the right direction, but not the solution. B2 and B4 can create a throw-in ko.

ProtoDeuteric: If it is not to imposing of me, would you please give me the credit for this solution? I put the exact solution sequence on the attempts page before you created the solution page.

tapir: I like that this is a beginner exercise, it's not sooo easy :)
