Joseki  

This is the most common result of the pincer at B3. Black now has a choice of direction: he can reinforce the top-side group with a, or the left-side group with b or c.

If Black chooses B1, White will generally answer at W2, after which B3 is common. The joseki ends locally; White's next move is often to prevent the wall with B1 from getting a good extension. There is another line to consider here, though.

White can resist the peep by playing W2. B3 is the usual response, though B4 and a have also been tried. The order of B5 and B7 can be reversed, there are not enough pro games available to show a preference here. W8 is an extension to b or c.
