Kyu Exercise 5 / Solution

Sub-page of KyuExercise5

Main line

Main line (6 at 3).  

The sequence of B1 and B3 is the key. Note that if Black captures the three white stones, the group will get a second eye and lives.

Main line (4 at marked atone).  

The rest is atari all the way.

Main line.  

Which ends in a shunt after B1. Ironically, the white+circle stone appears to be at a very beautiful position but does not help White at all.


Variation 1.  

If W2, Black lives simply by atari at B3 and B5.

Variation 2.  

Same case.

Variation 3.  

The jump at W2 will only cause the entire chain to be captured.


Failure 1.  

The direct atari at B1 does not work.

Failure 2.  

The sequence of B1 and B3 is wrong. After W4, Black is dead.

Failure 3 (8 at 5).  

The smart aleck move at B1 will only remove White's weakness.
