Learning the Ladder

Here, you will learn the form called a Ladder (it is sometimes also known by the Japanese name shicho.)

You will soon realize why it is called that.

Your turn.

Try again.

Did you manage to escape White’s persistent attack?

As you can see, if there is help (in the form of friendly rocks) along the way, you can evade the attack as you can extend faster than the attacker.

What would happen next with the attacker?

He will have a hard life…

Be cautious when trying to evade an attack in the stair case.

Don’t play Go if you don’t know the ladder.
