Now a and b are now miai to kill White. 7 at 8 - 8 at 7 and it is ko. What about 5 at 6?

Another attempt by kungfu

Well, after White 3, I don't see how Black can kill anything. Every move inside I seem to be able to find an answer for and no refutation. Is this the solution? For example:

Attempt

--Dieter: Well, I have to check the problem book again. Even simply descending to 3 immediately saves the group. It feels as if there is a superfluous stone, probably the marked one, as unkx80 indicated. My apologies if it turns out to be so.

unkx80: I make the claim because I think I have seen this before somewhere. So I modify the marked stone and present what I think is the solution.

Solution?

The tesuji is White 1.

Variation 1.

This lives. I think I have them covered in Beginner Exercise 56 and Beginner Exercise 58.

Variation 2 (Main Line).

The next tesuji is White 3, sacrificing yet another stone.

Variation 2a.
Variation 2b.
Variation 2c.
