I hope I will be forgiven for starting another study journal when I already have one. Here I will only post problems. The focus is not on super hard problems, but on problems that I feel I should have gotten right but missed. All problems will be black to play.

Problem 1

I guess these problems are a little above my level, but I don't understand why this :w2: isn't a refutation of the given solution:

E.g., this is insufficient. One must also consider other variations, in particular,

Yep,

Because black has the marked stones in this shape, black's counter-atari is highly effective for dealing the cut, which is why black should have no fear of playing double hane.

Black has no fear of the cutting point below because White's corner shape is not solid enough. If white cuts, black easily pushes through, severely damaging White's marked stone and making the cut at "a" for black work next.

This variation seems inferior because it gives White too much influence.

White is threatening the sequence a-b-c, cutting off the three marked stones. How can black defend?

I'm experimenting with this problem format. The problem is considered "solved" if you thought of the right sequence, even if you don't uniquely single it out as the best sequence.
Why this format?
On the one hand, I don't think that, relying only upon my own intuition, I would be able to confidently state that :w1: is the best move.
On the other hand, I think if I had actually visualized the sequence :w1: :b2: :w3:, I would have gone ahead and played :w1:.
Therefore most of the benefit can be had by just ensuring that I actually read the sequence :w1: :b2: :w3: (in the game I stopped reading at :w1: :b2:).
