Semi Eyes Win Semeais

    Keywords: Proverb

The following position was posted on Byorgey / GoBlog


I guess this is a seki, no matter whose move it is. But this position started me thinking about eyes in the corner (I really do mean the corner, that is, the 1-1 point).

White sets up a semi eye  

White has a "pseudo eye" or "weak eye" in the corner. I call this a "semi eye", yielding the proverb: "Semi Eyes Win Semeais." ilan

MrTenuki: You could also say that W3 sets up a temporary seki.

Bill: You can also call W1 - W3 an eye. :)
