Solutions

British Go Journal No. 54. October 1981. Page 26.

The problems to all these solutions are to be found on pages 19 and 20.


Solution 1







White plays 1 and 3. Black can make a seki but in gote.


Solution 2






Black can force a ko.


Solution 3








Black 1 gains two liberties in effect, since White cannot play on either side after black 5.


Solution 4








White 1 is a famous tesuji and Black cannot save his cutting stones.


Solution 5









White sacrifices a stone at 1, and now Black has no way to get more than two liberties.


Solution 6








Black 1 and 3 may not look much good, but 5 is a tesuji, and however White answers, Black can make two eyes.


Solution 7






Black 1 and 3 are the only way, then White throws in at 4, and the best result for both is a ko.


Solution 8









Black 11 at triangle

Black 1 is the only play which works, and white 2 is the most resilient reply. The extra black stone on the outside is necessary to stop White cutting at 'A' after black 13.
