Net problem

and wrap a net around the white stones. Her two liberties fall short to Black's three.

Net problem

This way is also not possible.

Of course here Black has a ladder (even parallel ladders) to capture White's stones; but there is no need to use a ladder.

Aji problem

Still, there is something of an aji problem left with the net capture: can connect under.

One should understand, though, that the / exchange loses something for White. White shouldn't play without some good reason.

Another problem

Another point to notice is that here is annoying for Black, if the centre becomes important and White tries .

Dieter: is probably a mistake. Black should attack from a distance, at a.

Another problem

Charles Even after the / exchange the net capture has tactical consequences, such as here.

Dear me ...

Oops - is vulgar, though. White at looks like correct shape here: consider Black a, White b later.

On the other hand ..

But now can create miai at a and b. It seems that good style here might lead one astray. White plays b, Black a: White still aims at c.

Tighter capture

Unless Black can really kill White on the side, answering at (or d) to prevent White's connection under might be correct.

Dieter: Charles, in all the above variations, Black cuts through the keima in the vicinity of aji. I think that is a mistake.

Charles It's all under the hypothesis that Black is interested in sealing off the centre. I mean, this is a discussion to see the other side of the 'prefer the net to the ladder' argument. The aji is there because Black didn't want the ladder aji, instead.
