RTG Problem 42 / Solution

Sub-page of RTGProblem42
Black to play  

The first move is more or less obvious. Then ...

White to play  

ndkrempel?: Well if white wants to try anything, it has to be one of the three marked points, so let's try them in turn.

White attempt 1  

ndkrempel?: From here, the four white stones cannot escape and cannot make a nakade shape: black is alive.

White attempt 2  

ndkrempel?: Black captures some stones to make a living shape. 3 can also be at 5, but not at 4 or 6.

White attempt 3  

ndkrempel?: Again black can capture the stones and live without having to fight a ko.
