Beginner Exercise 68 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise68

Lonestar: After B1, White cannot get a second eye, as the following two diagrams show.

Black 1 prevents the second eye  
Black first to kill  

lavalyn adds some more diagrams

Still no  
4 not at 5  

Shortage of liberties.

Black 1 prevents the second eye  

Jacob4Jesus: After B1 only a and b matter. They are miai to kill. N o matter what W does B3 should play on one of these. After B3 white is dead and B5 may be played elsewhere. (Except the first diagram case)

Reuven: Not at all sure if it's appropriate at all but perhaps the problem could start a bit earlier:

B to move  

Taking the position one move back like this also results in a single correct move, leading to the discussion above.

B to move  

Or even like this.
