3-4 point high approach three-space high pincer, tenuki

  Difficulty: Advanced   Keywords: Joseki
White's tenuki  

When White ignores black+circle, the local position is one that is familiar in the Chinese opening.

Black's keima  

Normally B1 is played, when White can continue at a for a small base; or at b first with the intention of using a sabaki technique next. These variations are studied in the Chinese opening, in the context of a 4-4 point in the upper right corner.

Black's contact play.  

Black can also play for the corner with B1 and B3. After that W4 is the 'book' shape; but in pro games the other marked points have been tried too.
