Problems

British Go Journal No. 62. July 1984. Page 20.

Six problenms of varying degrees of difficulty - but all should be solvable by 5 kyus and upwards. But remember - readout all the variations before looking at the answers.


Problem 1






This position looks deceptively simple. Can black save his group?


Problem 2





Four in a row is alive, everyone knows that, - except for black, whose move it is.


Problem 3






Blacks four stones are in trouble. His only chance is to use the marked cutting stone to try and counter-attack, but he seems behind on liberties...


Problem 4









Whites plight looks desperate - only one eye while Blacks corner seems to be bursting with eyes and liberties.., or is it. White to play.


Problem 5







Black to play - can he kill white?


Problem 6






Black has pushed through at 1, whereupon white has greedily tried to flick in 2. Black can rap whites knuckles, however.

[Start] The solutions to these problems are on page 30.
