If W captures :b1: any time instead of { :w6: .. :w16: },
then B simply squeezes.

If white ever captures at a to try and escape the ladder, black plays at b (or whatever the remaining liberty is), White fills at :b1: and then c captures.

If white tries to escape black has the ladder and it reverts to the same squeeze above once it gets to the edge.:

Hi Kirby,

Nice of you to clarify.
( Though it seems to be a standard, implied condition in all Go problems I've seen.
