Only a ko

jvt: Black 1 looks good but it is only a ko.

If White 2 elsewhere...

Black 3 occupies the important point and kills.

Continued

If White captures at 8, Black creates a false eye at 9.

Variation

White stones get captured in snapback on the left.

Black's next move?
Continued 1: (ko)

6 at 2.

Continued 2: (Black 1 kills)

jvt: White can't get a ko like this.

Mr.jvt:Why don't B 2?

DieterVerhofstadt (1k): White will eventually have to play at a and capture at b. Her eye space then consists of three in a row. That's a dead shape, since Black can throw in again at 1. --(exchanged b/w RogerHale?)

kind: for some reason i just can't believe white is killed. Looks more like a ko to me when black goes 1.

not sure though correct me if i am wrong

hmm how bout

now it is ko.

if black do something else

hmm how bout

alive

hmm how bout

same ko

hmm how bout

or

hmm how bout

so it seems like ko to me if black go 1 to begin with ?_?
