Bedtime Ladder Problem

I haven't been playing much, but I have been doing pretty regular go problems. Tonight I finally managed to actually get a KGS game in. I played a guest and my 'capturing stones' problems sure did pay off.

I am white, he is black. It is not a particularly hard ladder to read, but it still made me feel good to see that I could capture those two triangle stones easily into a ladder. He didn't agree, so played out the ladder and escaped when he discovered that it failed for him. Oops ^^

Sorry, but either i missed something or the position is wrong. I think after starting the ladder with p12 black connects at k5

Hi Silvana,

Yes, that was the first ladder I read there too. And you are right, that one doesn't work. But white can make other choices along the way to make the ladder work.

Let me know if you need more hints.

I got it, o9 instead of n10 is the 'trick' :-)
