border lines  

Border lines are the junctions between moyo. These borders are a specific type of sector lines.

Either W1 plays on the border line, widening white's moyo and reducing black's moyo at the same time.

Andy Pierce: I always thought "border lines" were symmetric with respect to opposite colored stones as in:

The examples above are of the form:

Which is not quite the same (black+circle was at a) although I believe the indicated points to still be the correct boundary plays. Are there any general rules about where to play given different spacings between the existing black and white stones?
