- White 104: 107 is impossible because of the cut at 104.
- Black 105: Walling off some central territory.
- White 110: 111 is better as it is worth two points with sente.
- White 118: Threatening 193 and 121.
- Black 119: The only play to stop both of the threats by 118.
- White 122: Better at 191, forcing P first.
- White 124: Very large. If black had got to play here his
territorial prospects would have been greatly increased.
- Black 125: This threatens 130 next with sente, and is thus stronger
- Black 135: Poor. Capturing 3 stones with Q would have made it a
decisive victory. Now however 137 can be safely answered with 138.
- White 150: This is the largest play, but it is not sente because of
155. Nor would 150' at 160 be for the same reason.
- White 152 destroying all black possibilities here.
- White 154: White can connect with either group.
- White 156: Stronger than R as it threatens more against the upper
- White 158 threatening S and again providing a connection with
- White 160: Not sente, for ???.
[This comment doesn't work. I quote
the original text here: Not sente, for if 162 b5, 163 b6, 164 a4x,
165 a3, 166 a5, 167 a7, 168 b6, 169 b7 captures the stones. Can
anyone decipher it for me? === sgb]
- Black 167: Three points with gote.
- White 174: If at 175, then 175' at 174 loses 7 stones.
[BGJ had 177' at 174 loses 7 stones.]
- White 176:
Otherwise Dia 8 leads to a ko.
- Black 179 threatens T capturing 5 stones.
- White 186 threatens U and V.
- White 192: Black should have played W with sente before this move.
- White 194: Otherwise X saves Black's stones.
Black wins by 7 points.
