TG53 After W61
From Teaching Game 53:
- Dave I am interested in your assertion that you will lose the game if you continue to defend. How do you assess the score at present? Where are the big moves threatened for both Black and White?
mat If Black just responsed defensively to all of the White a (I assume all of them are sente) these 64 points would still be his.
mat This would then be White's territory. Altogether 127 points + 3 captured stones. So White would have won with 50 points komi.
I know this is a very pessimistic estimation for Black, but I said: if Black ONLY defends she will lose.
