Two-space high pincer  

We study in some depth the following variations:


3-4 point high approach, two-space high pincer, inside attachment 3-4 point high approach, two-space high pincer, hazama tobi

Other possible variations  

Some other variations. The inside attachment at g is not considered good with this pincer (see 3-4 point high approach, two-space high pincer, inside attachment). White h was tried in a title game (Judan match game 1, 1971-01-06) Otake Hideo-Hashimoto Utaro. White i is an emergency measure and a rare move; White j is not so rare.


History

This is quite an old pincer (from the 1930s) but relatively unexplored until about 1970. An early reference is the Go Super Series book by Hasegawa Akira.

The book Essential Joseki is perhaps a better introduction than Ishida, but gets the history of the main line play b a little wrong. It was introduced 1952-03-11 by Fujisawa Kuranosuke, as he then was, in a jubango game against Go Seigen. Go Seigen was a great innovator, but in this case his opponent deserves the credit. The Chinese Opening by Kato Masao spends 27 pages on this pincer in Chapter 5.

A problem with studying this joseki is that some of the books emphasise old lines from the 1950s, or trick plays.
