Endgame Problem 9 / Attempts

Sub-page of EndgameProblem9
Weak points  

Ed?: Black has a couple weak points at 'a' and 'b'.

Attack 'a' (7 at marked)  
Black resists  

Black is unable to resist by blocking with B2.

Attack 'b'  

This attack is a little stronger than the previous one.

Attack 'b' black alternative  

The other move black has to save the marked stones is here. But black loses even more in the corner. After white connects at 'c' black must live at 'd'.

Almost sente  

Bill: W1 - W3 is fairly large, about 8.7 points.

Large gote  

W10 connects at black+circle.

B1 is almost as large, about 8.4 (8.5 points when White is komaster). So White will often be able to play here with sente.

Later B5 - W6 is sente, and even later B9 - W10 is sente.
