    From looking at the posted kifu it looks like you forgot to remove the move at H7.

    Thanks! I love watching your videos.

    How does the wedge at 24:05 kill white, if the one eyed black group only has 3 liberties? I am confused by this, probably missing something. 🙁

    You are totally right – black can’t kill white.
    It is a mistake.

    It’s not a mistake.
    White has no eye. if White play E8, Black F10, White can’t reduce Black’s liberties. If White E9 Black F11, it’s still an eye vs no-eye.

    But what about white D12 after the E8 F10 exchange? Doesn’t that end in Ko for an eye for seki/kill, should black play F12 or otherwise simply 1 more liberties for white?
    I found the game online here http://www.go4go.net/go/games/sgfview/30017 move 99.

    Then again, now that I look at it, I wonder if K7 really is sente for black. White can play E8 and black has trouble killing white before he dies.

    I am probably totally blind and missing something. :/
