Sunday Problem #88

Published 6 Feb 2022 by antti (last edited 15 Feb 2022)

This is a classic tesuji problem.

Black to play.

Black’s correct sequence is to block White’s escape with 1, and, after White cuts black with 2, to jump down to 3.
After 3, Black simultaneously aims to link up to the right with the monkey jump of ‘a’ and to capture White’s cutting stone of 2 with ‘b–f’. Because of this double threat, White has no way to avoid capture.
