Dear all,

was there any way for me (black) to win the semeai that ensued soon after C3? After A2, I knew that my group wasn’t locally alive, but I thought I had a chance of capturing white’s bottom side group… I lost the semeai by one move. Was there a way to do it? :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance,

Hey Lisa,

My attempts visualised here: https://online-go.com/review/292589 - no guarantees though :smiley:

After move 20 WB5 (which was a mistake) I think 21 BB2 just lives in the corner.

There was also the possibility of ko at A3, with the threat at B7 (at least that’s the biggest I see) which would however not be enough and black would still lose by 0,5 I think :smiley:


Thank you :slight_smile:
