5-5 point josekis

    Keywords: Joseki

Andre Engels: Not much joseki is known for the 5-5 point, not only because it is played rarely, but also because common wisdom seems to be that a 5-5 point is better left alone than approached in most cases. Here are some variations that have been played by professionals more than once, and thus might be considered proto-joseki.

pseudo-joseki 3 (white 11 at a followed by black b or at c)

pseudo-joseki 4 (white 11 at a)  

Actually just once this sequence, but I wanted it in because earlier moves in the sequence have been played more than once.

Shouldn't white 11 be at "b"? ~srn347

Chris Barnes, 2kyu? Back in the '90s, there was a rec.games.go newsgroup discussion that recommended a 3-3 invasion under the 5-5 stone. Has this move been seen in professional play?
