Tsumego From Games 31 / Analysis

Sub-page of TsumegoFromGames31

Charles I wonder if we have been given enough of the position.

First thought  

After W1, it seems that Black should aim at B4 and B10 to get something here.

If Black hopes that this makes miai of a and b to cut, there ought to be some shortage of liberties on White's part, if Black is to get any advantage.

As things stand:

First thought  

it looks rather as if W1 here kills Black.

Moves 200 to 203  

The whole board from the game. Black slid one line farther.


Charles White has to worry here about semedori, not just preventing Black making two eyes. Cutting with W1 and W3 is therefore tempting, because it makes White independently alive in the corner. But now Black at a becomes a serious threat.
