Kyu Exercise 57 / Solution

Sub-page of KyuExercise57

Status: Black can kill. White can make a direct ko which she takes first.

Black first

Black kills  

Black kills with B1.

White first

White makes ko (5 at 1)  

If white had just one outside liberty, she could squeeze with W5 at a (connect-and-die). But as it is, there is only ko.


W1 here is inferior. Although there is still a ko, B4 takes the ko first.

thanatos13: 5 at a makes white live, doesn't it? W5 at a is self-atari.
