White has a big lead (33 points). Black is trying to stage an upset. White lost 10 points by making the wrong choice between a, b and c.

Let's try. White's group on the left doesn't have two eyes, so a move at "b" would save it.

Edit: move :w8: in the diagram below is wrong!

So the question is whether :b1: threatens something. Clearly Black doesn't have enough space to make two eyes, so the only way for :b1: to live is to kill one of the white strings.

If Black plays :b3: at "a" or at any of the "d", then White can just capture the triangled stone and is fine.

"a" and "d" are miai. Same thing if :b3: and :b5: are interchanged.

So I don't think :b1: was a threat. The correct move must be "b" or "c", but I don't understand "c". What if Black cuts?

Perhaps :w2: aims at using shortage of liberties but I don't understand how, variations seem complicated.


Conclusion: I would play "b", it's clean and safe. Anyway White is leading, there is no need to search for complications.

jlt, take a look at your first diagram. Black can still cut. There is a better :w8:, though. However, even if White is cut, the group can live. How? What is the next problem then?

If Black d then White e.

If White is disconnected then I think that White can live like this but this weakens the bottom left group. In addition the situation of the white marked group is becoming unclear.

Don't forget that white passed for :w2: in your diagram.

Yes I wasn't clear. If :w2: is a pass then :b3: at "b" creates two problems. Therefore :w2: at "b" is a good move, since it solves both problems.

"Solution"

There was indeed no reason to answer :b1: at "a". Katago's preference is :w2: as it indirectly protects against a cut at "b" - White will capture the cutting stones at "d" if Black cuts - while poking at Black's shape. The dull connection at "b" is only a few points worse and good enough to keep the big advantage.
