Beginner Exercise 8 / Solution

Sub-page of BeginnerExercise8


Solution 1  

B1 makes the living eyeshape of bent four. a and b are now miai to keep this eyeshape and prevent it from being reduced to straight three. Black lives with 4 points.

Solution 2  

B1 works too but W2 forces Black to answer at B3. This way Black lives too but with only two points.

Solution 3  

If White plays a, Black plays b; and vice-versa

Failure 1  

The most tempting failure is probably the atari at B1. White ignores it and takes the vital point at W2.

Failure 1 Continued  

Black's capture is answered by the nobi of W4 and if Black finally protects his eyespace, it is already reduced to straight three and White plays the killing move W6.
