 Author: senetsomed [ Mon Apr 29, 2019 12:22 pm ] Post subject: Re: question about seki exercise in go book Thanks Uberdude, you're right, it seems the most plausible "patch".I think I didn't find it, because it is kind of a seki with cycle, because after black B2, white can play A1, forcing black to play C1 capturing, forcing white to play A2 to capture A3, returning then to the position after the initial black B2.I don't know if this makes this a "proper" seki, because couldn't this sequence be interlaced with other intermediate plays maybe "losing" this seki? May be this is usual with seki's as it is with ko's?I do not know: I am still at the middle of this beginners' book

Its only weakness is the introduction to the principle of two eyes, that is confusing.

So, it is a "proper" seki, even having a "cycle" of mutual attack and defense in it?PS: Yeah, the book is good: with it I'm starting to understand the game after various previous unfruitful attempts

They are thus considered as a "neutral zone".

Some rules, such as AGA, Ing, and Chinese, require a rule to prevent endless repetition in such cases. In Korean and Japanese rules White loses 1 pt. in each cycle, so if White keeps on playing the cycle, eventually Black can win the game by allowing White to capture the two Black stones.
