Solutions (p8, p15, p17)

British Go Journal No. 63. November 1984. Page 31.

The problems to these solutions are to be found on page 8, page 15 and page 17.

Solution (p8)

Black 1 is the only way to connect.

Solution (p15)

Black 1 in the left hand diagram doesn't work. This forms the "J" group, which is unstable and can be killed by white 2 - 8 (the order of 2 and 4 can be reversed). The way for Black to survive is to play black 1 in the right hand diagram, which becomes ko as shown.

Solution (p17)

White 1 is a surprising move, but it is the only way to stop Black from playing A with eyes available on either side (white A fails to black 3).
