RTG Problem 5 / Solution

Sub-page of RTGProblem5
Black first to play.  

Confused: It looks as if the main task for black is to die nicely, so that white can't live. B1 forces W2, otherwise Black would live with B2. B3 then destroys the potential white eye at a. From now on, White can only watch the group die at Black's leisure.

Too small to live (Black 7 at 4)  

If White takes with W4, Black retakes immediately with B5. Should White want to go on with W6, the eyespace will be too small for White to live.

Rabbitty Six is dead  

White is left with a Rabbitty Six group, which is dead once the vital point at B9 is filled.

Black lives, White dies  

ChrisSchack: Just to tidy up, 2 makes an eye in gote, then 3 lives in the corner, removing any space for a second eye.
