Definition

A watari, a Japanese go term, is a connection between stones by bridging underneath the opponent's stones at or near the edge of the board (usually on the first or second line, but also as high as the third line).

For Black black+circle stones, move B3 is watari, which connects the initially semi-isolated black stones with the group on the left. This version on the first line is sometimes called Binbo (poor man's) Watari.

Third line watari  

After B1 W2 connects to White's white+circle stones, then B3 is watari.
