tderz: White tries to resist with .
How to reply? Black a, immideately b or else?
tderz: here is met by and Black is lost in the ladder d-e
after , Bc, Wd.
Now, if the ladder in resistance diagram (8) (there a, here t or u) is not working for Black, the the chance is high, that the ladder d is not working here either.
Hence, this ladder question is a very important piece of information here.
tderz: One simply ends up in middle game.
Ba to e or simply e (perhaps sente for honte?) follow.
Is this a solution?
tderz: I don't think this is better ...
tderz: And the problem goes on ...
... what to reply here? a or b or else?
After Wa the ladder of diagram (10) seems to be broken by ,
but White can chose for variation (11),
which in turn is impossible for Black (because white a took a liberty),
tderz: impossible for Black
hence Black had to go for s.th. as in dia (12):
tderz: This additional strength is in-acceptable,
the leading to it was a mistake.
or cutting at b?
Of course, Black could think of living with c to o (still gote, I think), but Black will remain with the cutting point b.
Diagram (11) looks better for Black than this.
scwizard?: Black can also play like this:
