Sunday Problem #39

Last week we had an extremely difficult problem, so I picked an easier one for this time. This problem is so classic that it is hard to say where it is originally from; my guess would be one of the classic tsumego collections.

Black to play.

Solution
Solution
Black 1 and 3 are an exquisite move order. White has no resistance available and, up to 7, White is captured.
7 at 5
Failure
Black 1 here is wrong. This time, Black can only manage a kō for the white group’s life.
