Snapback Problem 18 / Solution

Sub-page of SnapbackProblem18
Black fails  

If Black defends two stones in the simplest way, White has a snapback to capture four stones.

Multiple-purpose move.  

I think that it is important not only to see snapbacks, but to be able to defend against them. B1 both breaks the ladder and prevents a snapback. After B5 White would hardly be able to get two eyes.

Charles Matthews B1 is an example of a nose tesuji.

I don't get the function of W2? Why not just go for the snapback?

Answer: After B1 the snapback does not work anymore. HolIgor
