Position after Black 191  

Now White can kill Black's group in the top left corner. The game fight then shifts to the bottom.

Moves 192-201  

White 1 kills the top left corner group. This move is worth 11 points miai counting, not as large as White would like.

Black 2 starts the attack at the bottom white group, cutting it from the main forces.

White 3 takes one stone. This move will help stones at the bottom to survive.

Black 4 prevents connection.

White 5 increases the space and at the same time threatens to start a fight.

Black 6 connects solidly. In the fight for life it is important not to give the opponent a forcing move. But could Black connect at 7?

White 7 cuts and now White threatens to capture two black stones and connect to the main forces.

Black 8 defends the stones solidly.

White 9 expands the living space and threatens to connect to another group.

Black 10 prevents the connection.
