Black kills  

KarlKnechtel: The throw-in is key here.

Black kills  

If White secures the eye in the corner first, Black ataris twice to prevent the second eye. W4 at B5 doesn't work either, because of snapback.

Black kills  

If White captures first, B3 removes the second eye in the centre, also threatening to take away the first central eye. Now a and b are miai for the kill.

Black kills  

If White secures the central eye with W2 (she cannot play at a due to shortage of liberties), Black removes the corner eye directly.


B1 does not work. After W2, a and c are miai for life.
