Hane  

Hane is a Japanese go term adopted by English speaking players. A hane is a move which "reaches around" one or more of the opponent's stones. The basic shape is the one formed by White 1 in this diagram. It is the natural response to a contact play.

There are many positions where a hane is a good move, as is witnessed by proverbs like "Hane at the head of two stones" and "There is death in the hane."

Bill Spight: About hane, reach around, wrap around and bend around: "Bend" could be confused with this play, a magari (turn). Better just say "hane".

Linguistic note

In Japanese, "hane" becomes "bane" in certain lexical contexts, based on Japanese rules of pronunciation. Example: nidan-bane.
