3-3 point invasion query 2

    Keywords: Joseki

Moved from 3-3 point invasion.


Agt: What if Black plays B1 instead of B3 - Should White play B3 then ?

Andre Engels: For White to play at B3 is a possibility: whether it is good depends on the situation. White is giving away the corner for a position on the side. One cannot in general say which is better. In many cases the best answer to B1 would be the docile response at W2. If Black next plays at B4, White plays at W3, and has a better result than by answering at W3 immediately (White almost is guaranteed two eyes already). If instead Black switches to B3, as here, capturing with W6 provides better shape than the normal joseki would do.
