atulab: if at 5 then, captures

now, another question arises, what should black do ?

black messes around

atulab: I feel like black should cut white into two groups as one lacks eye shape and the other one only has one and a half here, white has to protect both the left and the right group

Can anyone find other interesting answers for black ?

right sequence

shevious: To prevent White from falling in danger, White first is a good choice.

White connected

Black cannot divide White and Black stones are still dead.

Tricky variation

blackman: Black wont necessarily connect

W takes

blackman: There is two option for w, 'a' or 'b'

W plays at 'a'

blackman: This is oiotoshi

W connects

blackman: After 9 black wins the capturing race

shevious: No. White wins the capturing race.

blackman: Oh yes. :) I wanted to write White. :)

Comment

unkx80: It would be interesting to consider this variation, but I have not read it all out yet.

atulab: 15K approved ^^ I'm not sure that there isn't some tesuji at a though: black would then live in the right corner and kill white (eventually) in the left one (which looks better for him)

Solution

blackman: I think this goes like this

Solution 2
Solution 3
Solution 4

blackman: If black connects i think its a ko
shevious: I agree. White makes Black possible to choose dangerous ko or giving up stones.
I think White is better.

Solution 5
Solution 6
Solution 7
Continuation

blackman: Well this is just a few variation :)
