:b11: at a. If black omits :b9:, then white can play b and save the :wc: stones.

Re: tsumego 3. Here is Katago's analysis.


Suppose first that White pushes, Black blocks and White cuts.

(White shouldn't play :w7: at E15, otherwise Black sacrifices three stones and plays :b8: at :w7:.)

If Black protects the four stones with :b6:, then other stones are caught in a ladder.

However, before blocking, Black may want to make the exchange K14-L13 first, in which case the above variations don't work anymore, so White has to play :w5: differently. Black has to extend at :b6: otherwise the preceding variations work again, and then :w7: captures the cutting stone K12 in a ladder.

But I don't think of this as tesuji, white is playing fairly blunt moves.


I know these moves are blunt, but because my reading is too shallow, I couldn't see that a succession of 7 blunt moves actually works. That's one of the reasons why I am a kyu player...

Tsumego 4, analysis by Katago:

Suppose White cuts with :w6: as in Kirby's and xela's posts, then White loses somes stones but ends in sente: after :w10:, Black needs to play "a".

$$ ---------------------------------------

$$ | . . . X X X O X . X . . . . . . . . . |
$$ | . . X . . O O . . . . . . . . . . . . |[/go]


So White won't bother cutting at :w6: and plays as follows:

Tsumego #5: An easy one but I didn't take the trouble to read it during the game.

White to play. Assume White is alive. What is the status of the black group?

It seems that this is the correct :b1:, but White can play :w2: differently and get a ko.

Knotwilg, you mistyped what you had in mind in diagram 2 since there are two :w2: on the board and :b7: on an intersection that is already occupied by a white stone.

Anyway I think that :w1: starting from your diagram 1 leads to a ko (this is what happened in my game), while :w1: in your diagram 3 is the correct move, White wins the semeai without needing to fight a ko.

Problem #9. I was Black in this game. Between moves 50 and 130 I thought that I had killed the upper left corner. Probably White thought the same as well, as he didn't try to live. When he finally made an attempt at move 130, he didn't make the correct choice.

White to play and save the marked stones.

It is really necessary for Black to block at :4:, otherwise a variation like this can happen:

White has local ko threats: capture A16 or capture F13.

In order to live, White just needs to ignore one ko threat and then can live with B10: after :w9: ko threat, :b10: responds, :w11: takes ko, :b12: ko threat, then White is alive (if Black a then White b).

Move :w1: is interesting because go problems rarely teach us these kinds of moves. In most go problems, only one group is involved and we don't threaten to connect to another group before living locally.
