White to play  

Imagist: White gets a seki in gote this way.

White to play  

Imagist: If black doesn't mind taking gote, he or she can make a few points by sacrificing two stones.

Harleqin: 2 points (miai counting)?

White to play  

Chris: I think the given solution is not optimal for Black. Black can live in the corner and just give up two stones. This gives him 3 points. The seki is only one point for Black.

Bill: Count again. Black gets 5 pts. in the corner, White gets 3, for a net of 2 pts. for Black (the same as by living in the previous diagram).
