4-4 point, low approach, tenuki

    Keywords: Opening, Joseki

This gives an overview of 4-4 point low approach tenuki joseki that have a page (or several pages) on Sensei's Library. Usually the result of the tenuki is a double approach.

For each joseki, here or at the linked page a standard sequence is given (this is one of the more common ones, but need not be the absolutely most common one), and an overview of pages dealing with that joseki and its variations.

4-4 point, low approach, tenuki, 3-3 invasion

Invasion (B2 tenuki)  

dnerra: Without any pincers, I think that W3 is usually wrong and definitely not joseki. I have seen it in a pro game, but there it was played by white only since the surrouding conditions helped quite a bit to put this more into White's favour. Even so it was criticized by the majority of pros watching the game.
