Problem 5317
life and death
Stories, GuanZiPu, 2-2 Crosscut

This is a variation on problem 1489, Jimmy Cha's famous problem.
This time, it is not a matter of killing Black, but for Black to live.

The source mentioned is two chinese professionals who were in Tuchola, Poland for EGC 2004 (of which I was a participant). Although it's just a variation of an existing problem, I found it interesting, though not that hard if you know the original.

If you know the original, try solving this problem entirely in your head. (a good exercise anyhow :)

(This problem also exists in the Guan Zi Pu)
