3-4 Point 4-4 Attachment

  Difficulty: Advanced   Keywords: Opening, Joseki

Return to parent article: 3-4 Point Josekis

The 3-4 Point 4-4 Attachment is a joseki surrounding the 3-4 point. Before the AI revolution, it was rarely played, mostly as a special strategy against the Chinese fuseki. The same position can occur by transposition, when W2 is the first move in an empty corner and white ignores a ko threat at B1.

More recently, this pattern appears in a lot of pro games even when the Chinese fuseki is not played. It's hard to talk of established joseki yet, since black can reply at any of a through d, and each of these has multiple possible variations.
