Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 48 / Solution

[Diagram]
Life  

B1 makes miai of a and b. The circled point provides the other eye.

[Diagram]
Main line  

Thanks to the position of B1 and the throw-in at B3, there is shortage of liberties.



This is yet another application of the oki wants ikken tobi shape.


[Diagram]
Variation  

If White stretches at W4, B5 captures two stones in a snapback.

[Diagram]
Variation  

To demonstrate the miai, if White connects at W2, Black makes an eye, capturing white+circle in a net.


[Diagram]
Anti-suji  

Many players would play the atari. Now White no longer fears shortage of liberties, and Black is dead. This is terribly vulgar. It does not use black+circle at all.

[Diagram]
Failure  

(W4 at B1)

Other will see the throw-in at B1, and then follow this diagram. B7 seems to work, but White simply descends at W8 and Black can't connect at a - shortage of liberties !
