    gads that line does not work please check it before posting it

  • #43

    Engine checked with tablebases.

    There is a way for white to win, a pretty obvious one actually, employing a very basic tactic, but the line given in gads' post 41 is definitely wrong.  White's first move changes the win to a draw.

    9...Nc5+ loses.  Instead, the draw is still there with 9...Nb6, 9...Kd8 or 9...Nb8.

    Pretty easy. I solved it WITHOUT help.

    If you are inferring that I needed help,... I think you missed posts 43-49.  I posted this becuase 335 kept asking for it... an analysis of post 41.

    Just sayin'... in case :-)

    Seriously?  Try solving these problems:  http://tsumego.tasuki.org/  Try to solve these life and death problems(yes that is what they are called) from 1347 AD, mainland China, for Go game, Wei-Chi.  Xuan Xuan Qi Jing is the problem set.  I solved your "unsolvable" problem in first try, not hard, but Im used to solving problems that dont have any answers, such as the link above.  Enjoy!!!

    Interesting comment.  So anyone huh?  Even if they had a zero rating?  A 3 year old?  What about a mentally challenged person?  Might be a bit of an exaggeration don't you think Simon?
