I am a beginning Go player, and I was working on some Tsumego the other day. This one is marked as easy, but it has me stumped.
As you can see, I finally got desperate and clicked the hint button. I had already tried both of the two marked spots and the app told me those moves were wrong, but the hint shows that as recommended play. Can anybody explain what I’m missing here? Thanks in advance.
I would also appreciate some hints for how to best benefit from Tsumego. There’s never an explanation for WHY a particular move is right or wrong, and with my limited understanding, I’m not sure how much I’m learning from the experience. I try to puzzle through the strategy, but it’s often a mystery to me.
