Hikaru no Go - Problem 1 Solution

HolIgor: I knew the first move from the manga. However, I really enjoyed solving it.

Black first  

Resulting in shortage of liberties.

Black first  

If White connects, Black makes an eye in sente  

This simple continuation is best for White, I think.

If White connects with 4, Black gets it all  

If White denies the 2-1 point to Black, Black lives  

Shortage of liberties again  
Black first  

Oneplaygo(13k)?: Well here is the solution for this problem. Took me a little bit of a glance to get to this answer and why. But it seems quite simple. W would play at A next since black will no longer have any big moves on this diagram after A is played.
