I consider this one of the most extraordinary resignation positions to be seen.

A big ko fight is resolved yet that doesn't provoke a resignation. But immediately afterwards we get two opposing monkey jumps almost out of (and in) thin air and that provides the hemlock.



Now I make a monkey jump of my own to reach out to next week's host, T Mark.

Would you really call white's b19 a monkey jump? To me it is not because, as far as the big knight's move from an existing stone is concerned, that root stone is not on the 2nd line but the third, and it is on the 2nd line not the 1st. That the other coordinate of it is the 1st line is incidental to the monkeyness.

Aside from that, it's a classic attachment defence against black's monkey jump. At first I thought it was a jokey 1st line "please resign" move, but actually it seems it is the best yose.
