# Trick play example 8

From the dango page

16 stones in actual play ...

dia. (0): large Dango

Problem diagram [0]: How could this happen? (cf. dia. [99] or [5])
Let's have a look at some logical sequences.
(Logic has little to do with real truth or reality)

dia. (1): large Dango from extreme handicap play

dia. [1]: Tderz: This Dango could appear if Black plays too submissive and small-point-focussed several times.
At the same time,
White is playing trying to achieve the Dango in actual play.

is overdoing things? If at a, Wb can connect or capture in a ladder.
If at c, White can live.

dia. (2): large Dango

dia. [2]

dia. (3): large Dango

dia. [3]: and want to prevent the white connection underneath,
which is ok in itself.
Black could vary with , but is a nice tesuji.

dia. (3a): variation

dia. [3a]: is a nice tesuji too,
preventing momentarily the connection underneath
(cf. with dia. [10]).

dia. (3b): variation

dia. [3b]: -> a, -> b

dia. (3c): variant

dia. [3c]: Black cannot deviate much ...

dia. (3d): variant

dia. [3d]: are able to live now - Wa with weak ko b for Black
- who must avoid white c by black d (allows Wf or Be (allows Wd).
OK, the latter is not so interesting,
but if Black was able to play all this, s/he wouldn't need handicap ....

dia. (4): large Dango

dia. [4]: continuation from dia. [3]: is small-scale thinking again.

dia. (4a): variation

dia. [4a]:

dia. (4b): variation

dia. [4b]: -> ? or at a is not urgent for either

dia. (5): large Dango

dia. [5]: continuation from dia. [4]: ->

dia. (6): large Dango

dia. [6]: next is aiming to capture all ^^...

Just found by chance in "Breakthrough to Shodan", page 9, dia. 4 another variation how to produce this Dango:

dia. (7): variant in "Breakthrough to Shodan"

dia. [7]: Exchanging for strengthens White more than Black, a (question: or b?) are better.

dia. (8):

dia. [8]: commits a mistake to complete the trap.
should be at a (follow dia. [10]).

dia. (9):

dia. [9]: The are not well positioned.

dia. (99): follow-up

dia. [99]: at .

dia. (10):

dia. [10]: is tesuji (cf. with dia. [3a])
connects. After , another important move follows:

dia. (11):

dia. [11]: is tesuji (cf. in dia. [3]) and avoids the ko of Wa-e.

Tderz Who could/would add variations starting from diagrams [2], [3] and [4]?
