Amateur Fuseki 7
Could someone please explain how to proceed with white in this position? (With the black thickness white already seems to have a problem...)
HolIgor: I think that white has to secure the exit to the center from lower left first.
How would you estimate this position? Did white gain or lose in the last 10 moves?
HolIgor: white lost the exit to the center. That is big. I think that white could afford to lose the corner. It was not an awful lot of points.
For example in the variation up to 8 white is alive, yet to be limited, has 3 points instead of 7 but there is some possibiliity to attack the black's group at the bottom.
JoelR: So given does not attack anything, perhaps should be at the circled point instead of the right side? How does retaining the corner compare to continuing the right-hand framework?
Dieter: I thought was more active, at first, but probably White and are too easy. BTW, doesn't Black have to play first here (see above caption).
