Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 78 / Solution

We try it out at Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 78 / Attempts.

The solution is copied over from Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 78 / Attempts, with minor corrections.

Main line: Hashimoto Utaro
Variations: unkx80, Dieter


The tesuji is White 1.

Hashimoto's main line:

Main line  

White 11 at a and Black 12 can't play at b because White captures three in a row, assuring a second eye.


Variation 1.  

This lives. 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.  


Failure 1  

If White fires off the usual sequence first only to play the former tesuji at 7, she falls short as a is now suicide.
