Tsumego From Games 6

    Keywords: Life & Death, Problem

In the 2002 Belgian Championships, I was leading against Mr. Wong. Although the black group in this diagram was surrounded on a large scale, White could only make an L group: White a to Black f keep White to one eye. Black has enough liberties to capture the L-group.


To W1, I carelessly replied at B2. W3 made miai of life at a or connecting in ko at b. This was rather a dramatic turn of events, because if the corner lives, the surrounding black group is unsettled.

The correct answer is simply to extend as in the next diagram. Any beginner tsumego book will tell you that. But applying tsumego in games is another thing.
