    Keywords: Joseki, Question

(Moved from kosumitsuke joseki and dereferenced)

Is this joseki? I thought I would ask. - kungfu

According to my collection of professional games, B1 is always answered at a (28 times out of 28 times this position occurred). Black b looks like the most interesting answer to W2. - Andre Engels

Charles W2 has been played by Ishida Yoshio and Seo Neung-uk, but is hardly established joseki.

Bill: I got it from one of Ishida's books, which I have lost, at least for the moment. IIRC, he called it a new joseki. But maybe he just said that it was a baai no te.

phenomene : Ishida gives this variation in his famous Dictionary of Basic Joseki (vol. 1, p.157). He says : "I played this move on impulse, without having particularly studied it".


yes that is joseki up to 1, excluding 2


a and b can be next moves for black

BlueWyvern: Shouldn't the pincer stone be one space closer?
