Kyu Exercise 64 / Solution

Sub-page of KyuExercise64



The solution starts with W1. This is an unconditional kill.

Main line.  

This is the main line. After W5, Black cannot make his eye at a due to shortage of liberties.

Variation 1.  

If B2, then W3 connects. This is a case of double shortage of liberties.

Variation 2.  

Black has only one eye.


Failure 1.  

If W3 here, then B4 turns the status into a ko.

Failure 2.  

Although the hane at W1 is a strong move, but it still ends up in a ko. After B4, if White a connects, then Black b continues with the ko.

Failure 3.  

W1 is a common tesuji, but the result is still a ko.
