Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 66 / Solution
Main line: Hashimoto Utaro
Now Black has just two points.
Black 1 maximizes eye space but actually it leaves defects...
Black lives but is worse off than in the main line. (but he does as well as in the variation to the solution)
If White stubbornly tries to kill Black, she fails.
But if Black stubbornly tries to save his stone, he dies!
This line doesn't work for White: Black is alive
But Black must be careful not to capture with 3.
If Black 3, White can kill the group in ko.
