Tesuji From Games 3 / Attempts

Sub-page of TesujiFromGames3
White to play  

5 kyu guess: If white doesn't try to kill the black dragon on the left, I don't see how white can win this game. Even if the dragon lives, white can gain power in the center from the dragon's struggles and use this power to invade the top side and support white's four-stone finger on the right.

Alex: I'm thinking that a splitting attack is the answer. Given that this is a tesuji problem, there might be some clever way to sweep out the base of Black's group on the right side - its shape certainly looks a bit sketchy. I'm don't have time to put much thought into it at the moment, though.

unkx80: The left side deserves another look, but I don't think White can kill.

Left side  

Black at W1 escapes, so W1 seals Black in. The left side and left center is half eye each, but the problem is when W5 pulls out, Black can atari all the way...

Left side  

From B1 to B9, Black cuts off the White group.

unkx80: Alex mentioned that there might be a tesuji on the right side.

Right side  

I guess the tesuji is W1, but I might have goofed somehow... going to sleep, continue later.
