3-4 point high approach, double contact, noseki

    Keywords: Joseki

This is a variation of the 3-4 point high approach, double contact joseki, which is not joseki itself.


B1 is noseki, but White must be careful to obtain a good result. W2 to B5 are forced. At W6, White has as many as 6 choices.

Noseki - a  

After B6, White can cut at W7.

Noseki - b  

White is effectively cut.

Noseki - c  

This is comparable to but worse than variation a, for W1 is not on the circled point and thus not efficient.

Noseki - d  

This looks difficult for White

Noseki - e  

This looks acceptable, but better for Black? m is important for White's stability

Noseki - f  

Again White is cut.

Since 1 of 6 choices produces a good result, and the others not a favorable one, we could perhaps classify this as a trick play.

Noseki - var at 4  

Black's wall is too strong
