Difficult (or not) tsumego

I saw some tsumego on twitter. I liked them.

Unfortunately you can’t quite see 25-28.

I made a demo board with all the positions. I assume everything’s black to move, but it may not be so.

Remember though, you’re supposed to solve it in your head and not click through!

How many can you solve?


It would be helpful to know what the target for each problem is. I assume like the Cho Chikun problems they are black to play, but everyone knows what happens when one assumes.

It would certainly make the problems easier, but the blanket question, “Status?” is still valid. It’s what you face on every move of a real game. Can you tenuki here or not? If you’re wrong you either lose immediately or you just gave your opponent a free handicap stone.
