Describe LeatherScrollProblem79/Attempts here.

This is the solution found in my copy of the XianJiWuKu (in SGF format).


I'm posting this here in 'Attempts' because I don't think it works:


Since there is no way for black to make two eyes inside the white group or win the semeai, I'm sure black can't kill in this position. I don't think there's a way to make seki either, so this can't be the winning line. --gnostic?

1 2 3 still looks good, 4 is necessary.


5 and 6 look logical


w 7 b 8 looks interesting.
