Tsumego From Games 11 / Solution

Sub-page of TsumegoFromGames11

White W1 is better. The reason: Black a does not threaten to kill:


If W2 is elsewhere and Black captures with B3 ...


... White recaptures by playing under the stones.


If White plays here instead of the correct answer, B2 threatens to kill because now there is not enough room under the stones. That means that B2 is a bigger ko threat than when White plays at a instead of W1.

For some confused commentary, see /Discussion.
