White plays.
Published in the May 26, 2015 edition of the American Go E-Journal.

Michael created this amazingly subtle problem from an unplayed variation in the 7th game of the finals of the 39th Kisei tournament between Iyama Yuta 9P (Black) and Yamashita Keiga 9P.  See the game record and Michael’s variation here.

Michael Redmond 9P shares with the E-Journal some of his own tsumego compositions. For these more challenging problems, dan players can test their reading speed and accuracy, while kyu players can play through the solutions to learn ideas and techniques. The solution will appear a week after the problem publication.
