Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 95 / Solution

First of all, I decided to radically change my treatment of this series. The book by Hashimoto Utaro will be used as a reference guide, no longer as the determining source for solutions. In particular, the main line will from now on be the one that we deshis came up with as giving the most resistance by both players. This way I will do more honour to the efforts done here while better avoiding the copyright issues that may arise. Dieter

Main line

Main line  

W1 threatens W3 and White a but B2 and B4 keep the one-eyed-string short of liberties. W5 cuts to break up the stalemate. Up to B10 Black tries to keep White's liberties minimal. But then ...


... White forces herself out of the shortage and captures the cutting stones in a net with W3. The alternatives for W3 are discussed at net example 8.


Variation at 2  

The clue of this problem is that W1 sets up an under the stones tesuji. After B6 captures four stones, white returns at the spot of the marked stone, and captures black.
