Kill yourself in gote
Even worse than death in gote is to kill your own group in gote.
Here is a full list:
- live in sente
- live in gote
- die in sente
- die in gote
- kill yourself in gote.
Fwiffo: Is it not possible to kill yourself in sente?
Neil: I'm guessing some sort of Mutual life example can be found where you throw away your stones, the opponent has to respond, and then you're left with the same initative you had before, only having suffered a loss.
Tas Of course you can Kill yourself in sente, se the link.
BTW here is my evaluation of the above list.
- Obviously good
- Good unless you have an even bigger play elsewhere (unlikely)
- Irrelevant (migth lose some aji though)
- Wasted move
- Lose the move AND a lot of points.
At five of course is to be inserted the KillYourselfInSente - Loss of points without the loss of the move
