Kyu Exercise 32 / Attempts

Sub-page of KyuExercise32
Gote eye killer  

AdamMarquis: The first thing I notice is that White can destroy the eye on the left, in gote. W3 at W1. B4 at the marked white stone. If White did this, Black would simply play in the bulky five on the right (a) to make two eyes.

Trying for sente  

AdamMarquis: W1 seems to bow before B2. Now White must stop a second eye in two places, but both are gote (a and b).


AdamMarquis: How about this W1? Black must play B2, or get no eyes on this side. W3 is also forced, to stop Black from getting two (three even) eyes here. After W3, Black is in a rough place: all he can do is make an eye in gote on one side or the other with a or b. Unless I missed something, which is very possible ^_^, Black can't live after W1.

unkx80: Nice attempt, but sad to say, not quite there yet.

Tjalveboy Isn't black alive? Black can play under the stones in the corner, cant he?

Black alive?
