maybe.....D8 or c3-b6.

I'm beginner

I have the opinion like Hotaru.
First, D8, then b6, at last c3,黑不能兩全~

If white play D8 first, black will block at D9. if white continue with b6, black will block at b5. if white continue with c3, black will just play b3, and white will only has 1 eye so far.

to be honest.. this L&D is kinda hard. it's not as easy as the previous two I gave.
But I believe you guys can solve it :)

Hmmm, what abt F4-F7-D4-D8-C8 ?

when black block b5, I think white could play b8,if black play a6, white could play a7,成劫

Kitsune said...

If black block at C8 ? what will you do?

Biondy said...

F4-F7-D4-D8-C8.
-If white play C8,black will simply play D7 and white will eventually die.

when black block b5, I think white could play b8,if black play a6, white could play a7.
-Kitsune's reply is true. black will just block at C8.
eventhough if the sequence goes that way, it will be black b7,c3,b3,b6,a5,b7,b9.
white still only has one eye.

The key of this tsumego is the fact that it's not only white who is in danger. black's corner is also threatened.
