Cutting The Keima Can Be Severe

    Keywords: Shape, Tactics

In this situation, assume that the ladder does not work for Black:

Black should defend  

Black can make shape now with a sequence like Black a, White b, Black c for a table shape. If not ...

Black in trouble  

...the cut at White 1 is troublesome if the ladder is bad for Black.

Black tries to compromise  

In both diagrams, the cut should usually be a big success for White.


Charles Isn't Black 4 in the last diagram questionable? And 6? And 7? Discussion now at Heavy play example.
