Tesuji From Amateur Games 1 / Solution

After W1, black cannot kill the white stones.

Black lives, white lives.  

7 at a or b looks good, too. (Bill, is this better?)

Bill: I suspect that the diagram is incomplete. B4 might be better at B6, depending on the surroundings. Wc - Bd is White's sente. W7 is not necessary for White to live. To avoid being shut in by Bb, White can play We. Again, the surroundings matter. :-)

iff Another possibility for 5:


Bill: Another possibility, but not a good one. The capture makes life for White. After B8, White cannot even jump to a. (Also, B8 is better at b.) And c will usually be sente for Black.

Black goofs, completely dies (6 at 1)  
Black fails.  
Black fails again.
