Beginner Exercise 35 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise35

lavalyn says this is a cool problem with an interesting final result.

Looks like two eyes?  

Black looks sort of alive, but actually is caught in snapback from both directions!

unkx80: Heh. This is called a double snapback. =)

Muadhdib : so, after B1, 2 and 3 are miai, right?

LukeNine45: Correct.


Black can otherwise secure two eyes at b if White plays a or c.

Radvendii: this is a good example of playing where your opponent wants to play

adminh?: Not exactly. If it was Black's turn, he'd want to play at a and live with 4 points.

Bill: Plus the chance to capture two White stones. :)
