Beginner Exercise 58 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise58

W1 is the only correct move. If B2 tries to destroy the eye at the top, White can block at W3. With the marked stone, Black cannot play at a to connect B2. So B2 is effectively captured, and White lives.

Moosky: If B plays B2 at W3, W will answer at B2, effectively making 2 eyes. This will be the better move for Black, as it takes 1-2 points away from White (if B captures the marked stone).

What if?.  

Jacob4Jesus: Doesn't B6 at B4 kill? Is there a better play than W5?

JoelR: No, If B6 at B4, then W7 at black+square. Please read these things out, making note of which stones are still on the board and which are not.


White has only one eye.
