Psychological tesuji

    Keywords: EndGame, Tesuji

Consider this position:

Initial position  

If white plays first:

White sente  

W1 - B4 is sente.

So if Black plays first:

Reverse sente  

The sagari at B1 is a skillful reverse sente. Later, B3 - W6 is sente.

The hane at B5 instead of B1 would normally be a mistake.

Black has a trick play that will often let him keep sente if White responds incorrectly. Do you see it?
