3-5 point, 4-3 approach, one-space pincer, diagonal, jump

    Keywords: Joseki

This is the most common result of the pincer at B3. Black now has a choice of direction: he can reinforce the top-side group with a, or the left-side group with b or c.


If Black chooses B1, White will generally answer at W2, after which B3 is common. White's next move is often to prevent the wall with B1 from getting a good extension. Leela Zero suggests kicking with a or turning at b.

There is another line to consider here, though.

LZ's variation  

White can resist the peep by playing W2. B3 is the usual response. Leela Zero suggests to crawl at B5 and then attach at B7. After W10, a, b and c may follow.
