Monkey Jump Problem 1 / Solution

Sub-page of MonkeyJumpProblem1
Only answer  

All other moves than W1 lose territory.

rubilia: Are you sure black cannot live in the corner? If she could, there should be better moves than W1 to B7. Do you leave this question open by purpose? I suppose a white stone somewhere in the corner (at b17 for instance) would make the problem a clearer "monkey jump" one.

Common mistake.  

If Black can play a ko with B4, White gets a disaster as a result. Otherwise, Black can play at a and still get a much better result than in the correct line of play.

What if?  

Zappastian: What if black continues to attack like this?

Can black live?  

xela: It's the same as the question rubilia asked above (and that noone has answered yet): can black live in the corner? I think the answer is probably not, but I'm not entirely sure: this sort of thing can get complicated, especially if there is a black stone near a.

What is wrong with this?

Flower viewing ko.  

Black can start a flower viewing ko at B6, so your sequence is not recommended. --unkx80
