RTG Problem 8 / Attempts

Sub-page of RTGProblem8


Black to move: 6 at 3, 8 at 1  

Alive if Black to move.

Dead if White to move, starting with W7.

Andre Engels: In your sequence, if White answers B1 at B3, Black is dead. Therefore I think Black should start at B3, as below, leading to ko.


If White answers B1 at W4, Grauniad's sequence gives Black life, so White would do best to connect at W2, and fight a ko with B3 and W4.

If it's White's move, there are plenty of moves that kill Black. My own preference would be to play White a or b, since they have most influence on the outside.
