Tsumego thread

Tsumego are such an important part of go. But we don’t have a tsumego thread. That’s not right!

The So-called Strength in Go is Actually the Strength of Your Calculation Skill

These look tsumego-like. What do you think? :thinking:

Black to move. Could anyone explain the different kos here?

This thread has potential so let’s give it a bump.

It seems black to live. But in comment they wrote that black lives on the left and white makes ko on the right.

Not a tsumego but a fun reading practice for kyus.

Can white survive? I’m thinking not.

If it were my move, and I were white, I think I’d hit I5, hope black blocked with H5, then I’d try something into the 3rd line with I3 then L3.

I think my coords are right there.

You never know unless you try :slightly_smiling_face:
Although this can turn into a bad thing especially when we get into trolls.
