Distant low approach  

White can choose this approach (kakari) to avoid a severe pincer.
Black's answers to the distant low approach include:

  • The kosumi at a emphasising the corner is by far the most common answer.
  • The shoulder hit at b is played when Black is aiming to develop the left side, notably in the Kobayashi fuseki.
  • The pincer at c emphasises the right side.
  • Tenuki variations are not uncommon.
  • Other possible answers are the other pincers or extensions along the left side.
