9x9 game

In https://online-go.com/game/24334213 why is F7 considered a grave mistake by the AI? D8 is not possible, see the variation posted in the chat.

if white tenuki’s the top right, can white live?

Would you rather force white to live, or have the possiblity that white misreads and you get to win easily?


If white ignores the top after C8 instead of F7, black can kill white by G7, so I guess not.

So then it is a bad move because I am lose the initiative this way?

It’s a bad move becasue you lose that possibility and you have to come back and play the connection anyway. At least that’s the honte way to think about it. I have no idea if the bot thinks that way too.


Makes sense, thank you!
