Beginner Exercise 65 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise65

B1 rescues the black group. white+circle cannot escape because of connect and die.

Black is alive.  

Since black+circle captured three stones in a row, Black has a second eye where those stones were.

Note: W4 would probably be played at B5 because White would realize that the connection to the marked stone means death for at least three, whereas connecting out saves two to three stones and threatens the black group further, forcing (locally) a play at the W4 in the diagram.

Black is dead.  

Blocking at B1 allows W2 to kill Black.

Black is dead.  

Similarly, descending at B1 allows W2 to kill.
