Live shape

  Difficulty: Intermediate   Keywords: Life & Death, Go term

A big eye that is not a dead shape.

One could also include big eyes that result in ko for life.


Alex Weldon: In the middle of the board (and, I think, on the edge, but correct me if I'm wrong), any eye of seven points or more (where the surrounding stones form a single group) is a live shape. As always, special properties of the corner can change this.
