comment How to run strong Go (baduk) playing program locally?
The strongest bots often require cluster computing, and are not available to most users. However, dan-level bots can surely be bought, e.g. remi-coulom.fr/CrazyStone

comment Can black win in this Go situation?
The only conceivable move for black would be to extend his 5 stones downwards (nobi). If white hane, then black hane, and if white cuts, then black closes white in to try and create a seki - but white can make that fail by creating an eye. And even without that, white has numerous ways to resist this, so it is not at all certain if black can survive. In any case, the white group is alive, while the black group is struggling and 99% dead.

The move in the picture does not work. White will push down, then atari three times, and then white either captures a stone or connects.

comment How far can you safely extend from your own wall?
@naught101 Black stole the edge area from white, so white cannot make eyes there anymore - which sucks, because making eyes in the center is much more difficult (it simply takes more stones to do so). Accordingly, white cannot expect to make many points with this group (because she will probably be busy to keep them alive). I'm not saying the white stones are weak, but they are weaker than they should be, without any gain in exchange - it is simply a poor trade, and white should try to avoid it if possible. In this case, it is relatively simply to avoid without major losses, so why not!
