Ponnuki  

A ponnuki is the process of capturing a single stone, leaving a diamond shape.

This move and its resulting shape, radiating influence in all directions, is considered a very good one, as is witnessed by the proverb "A ponnuki is worth thirty points".

That does depend on the positions of other friendly black stones: a good ponnuki is under-concentrated, not overconcentrated
