anon: Wow, that was fast. I didn't even know where to begin with this problem.
unkx80, would you or anyone else be willing to walk us through the rest of this problem? Weaker players like me find it difficult to see how to move next.
unkx80: Sure, no problem. I am very lazy, so the tendency is that my posts are very brief and short.
In this diagram, Black 2 captures three white stones to make the second eye.
Finally, if White protects her weakness at 1, Black simply makes his second eye at 2.
anon: Isn't this a four-line long one-space notcher? Couldn't White kill Black if she played at a? (Don't forget the other eye at b Dave.) OK, just proves that I'm an idiot. I thought a would've taken away the second eye.
Some comments: From my own experience and intitution in playing go, in this position the point to target is a; so the problem becomes how to make it possible. And I know for sure that Black b, c, d and e will not help. Black b is answered by White c or a; Black c can be answered at b; Black d can be answered at a, and Black e can be answered at a too.
I hope this helps. --unkx80
anon: Yes, it was extremely helpful! Thanks again.
unkx80: Welcome. =)
