Kuksu 47 Game 4 Melee
HolIgor: As we know by now, black a kills the white group which is about 12 points miai. Quite a lot. White has to capture to live and I think most everybody would do so.
HolIgor: White starts a hunt for the black's bottom group. seems big, It is not only the corner. If black kills the group on the left side and white plays at 8 black will have 3 weak groups and one of them will surely die. is forced.
HolIgor: Is forcing? It is difficult to say but since is forcing in a sence that if now white builds eyes on the left, black will also have an easy eye at the bottom, black looses nothing playing . Of course, that's on the condition that he knows that he is leading.
HolIgor: denies black an eye. is somewhat strange. Why did not black jump farther?
HolIgor: and are just kikashi and defence. as an answer to creates one eye.
HolIgor: . That's it. This ko is huge. I have a game of mine with the Guiness world record for the size of ko. I have to publish it but it is difficult to find. This is not very far behind. If black wins the ko white has a problem with the right side group and since the group on the left side is in suspended state, one of them would be gone. A simple life is enough for black. White will resign in several moves.
I can continue with the ko-fight,but there is no interest and no discussion and anybody can find and replay the game to the end.
The next game I'd like to consider is the game against Wang Lei in the Fijitsu cup. The beginning is the alternative to this mini Chinese Yi has a problem with. I can do it for myself, ofcourse, but I'd like to hear some encouragement.
