Well there are Joseki's to learn. For averge joe the are not important but if you wann be really good
Haven't gotten that far yet .I know simple concepts like hane,atari,life and death etc,ko etc.
black to play to kill this group.
Can white run upwards? Because that's how it looks like and if this is the case then the group is pretty much unkillable. Black can capture 4 stones in gote with Q2 but that's small.
I think you are correct.
Seriously....I recently started playing Go over at OGS....I have to say I absolutely love this game.There's such harmony and beauty in this game,and without the opening theory that dominates chess.There's so much to learn.
Great! I think so too! There is a lot of harmony and beauty? What's your username in OGS? I want to challenge you.
Q2 should be point, but that's small.
You are correct...I worded it incorrectly.black to move to kill a few stones (the four stones in the corner).
It has been 20 years since I have played go, but I used to be decent, but I think the whole group can be killed. It will hinge on S8 not being a valid "me". Not sure though...where is our local Go expert?
That problem is not solvable as top is missing. eye at bottom can be removied in two ways and defender must connect or make eyes at top ans since it is not shown....
yes petrip...I assumed we were looking at a beginner puzzle with a small board
Hi i returned from vacations (with my bad english) xDDD and black can play Q2 to solve the problem, tho ones who know more about go will say its a small apture and it is indeed, but un yose (late game) moves like ht can reach more value, i guess its a 15-20k problem :)
