BQM 40

    Keywords: Question
A wedge variant question  

Is B1 a good move?

Is one of the approaches a and b better for White, and why?

Dieter: I think it is playable. The next diagram can be expected.

A likely result  

But I like the white position better.

Preparation for pincer?  

Dave Sigaty: I think that the simplest way to look at it is to ask the question why would Black exchange 1-4 before playing a pincer? In the present situation Black "forces" White to build a wall on the left before playing B5. It is almost impossible that Black is better for having done this rather than playing a pincer directly instead of B1.
