Ten Thousand Years Ko

Presenting the infamous 10,000 years ko.

As you can see, white will have to give black quite some moves to win this ko, making it almost same as the seki. But this ko is gote, and the seki is sente, which means that the sente seki often is the best play in this position.

Still, it is important to know that this is a possibility in this position too, and to be able to choose the right one for the board.

Go is so much fun!
