Kyu Exercise 202 / Attempts

Sub-page of KyuExercise202
There is this  

Dieter: ladder looming B12 must probably come earlier and W van then sacrifice If W resists with b in the upper part then B has time to squeeze.

RueLue: what about first playing W on 12 - one more liberty

I tried to transcribe the refutations continuation Uberdude/snakesss? suggested on OGS, hopefully I got it correct...

cont 1  

(W2 isn't the only way for W to try to gain liberties but playing it at 7 is easier to refute; Other moves to consider are playing it at 5 or 6 but they simple as well?)

cont 2  

Then snakesss? suggested W4 here, what I think is a very easy move to miss, to keep the libs down. Really impressive...

uberdude/snakesss? cont 3  

W is always a move behind and has no chance to initiate the capture at a.


Considering the first variation where W is always a move behind, and having no change (I think?) to play W1 here once the a sequence is started, this W1 seems like a good first move?


Just one caveat, the OGS AI suggested 9 instead of connecting with this on an open board. Maybe if W did connect, after a or something similar, W isn't completely alive, yet?

The more I stare at this, the less it seems like a kyu problem... :/
