Notepad of Progression
Here I write down what I learn to go back and keep it sticky until really learned. It involves, among others, Tesuji and endgame.

How many points can each of the player make by a/b? ...And is it Sente or Gote? No Tesuji, no help this time.
Again, without Tesuji and thus without help. What is the difference in playing a) black or b) white?
It is Sente and around 13 points. I am not totally sure how much really, but think itīs a fair assumption.
White has a Ko, yes, but this is very heavy and is normally not played. If losing it: Black wouldnīt lose many points, white yes.
Black captures 1
Every player has two captives, equaling the result in this point. In all, Black can win 1 point in Sente, or, playing out all, 3 in Gote.
It is Gote with Sente continuation. Up to 3 it is Gote. Later it is blacks privilege to play 5 in Gote. Would white instead play 5 (4) imediately, it would have been Sente for black. So it is either 4 points in Sente, or 14 points in Gote - for whoever plays first.
Up to White 3 it is Gote for White, he has a Sente continuation. Whe assume that Black plays 4 elsewhere.
Up to black 3 it is Gote for Black, he has a Sente continuation. Whe assume that White plays 4 elsewhere. Compared, the difference is 12 points.
All Tesuji not belonging to Yose.
