Sunday Go Puzzles!

Wow, I almost forgot to put up today's puzzle.  It's not midnight in my time zone, so I can still make it!  Here's today's problem.  It's a doozy:

Well, maybe it's not that bad.  Let's just say the obvious move may not be the best move.

Solution to Last Week's Problem

This problem was tricky because it involves sacrificing so many stones, and visualizing the shape after each sacrifice.  The idea is simple: The lower right corner is a an eye in gote.  That means we have to get rid of one of White's eyes on the left.  In this case, we can create a two way street.  Black 7 threatens White's eye, now if White wants to make a gote eye in the corner, he can't save his other eye.  This one was tricky! comments
