Suicide In response to White 1, playing a hane at Black 2 is a poor move. White plays 3 and 5 and, after Black 6, White 7 kills the group. Also, even if Black plays 6 at 7, White descends to 6 and kills him. In addition to these possibilities, Black 2 at 3 is met by a white placement at 6 and Black still dies. 201 Pattern 21 White to play, Black dies It looks as if White should be able to do just about anything and kill the black group, but a ko is not enough. The key is to eliminate Black's ability to resist.

209 Pattern 28 White to play, Black dies This is similar to the previous pattern except that White now has the marked stone in place, so Black's position has worsened. In this case, White needn't settle for a ko: he can kill the black group. Solution 2. Three-space big eye After White 1 and Black 2, White can aim to connect underneath with 3. After Black 4, White will descend to 5 and answer Black 6 by attaching at 7. Now, if Black plays 'a', White has the cut at 'b'.

Even if Black captures two stones at 'a', it should be obvious that White will throw in one space to the left of White 3, so Black dies. Failure.
