Double hane example 5

    Keywords: Shape, Problem

(Sebastian:) Inspired by this article, I just tried this (in [ext], but I didn't know how to get out of the situation in sente. I was unhappy when I had to play B3, but I couldn't treat B1 as light. Any hints?

Moves 72 to 78  

Bill: First, you do not have to treat B1 lightly. After B3, W2 is a poor orphan. What is to worry? Second, a is a vital point.

grolich: Locally, black got a good result, and white still has things to worry about. Why would you want to treat a stone which is doing so much good work now lightly?
