Compromised diagonals and joseki 5

  Difficulty: Expert   Keywords: Joseki
3-3 point  

W1 is only played if White is very strong in this area; positions where black+circle feels more like an invasion than a kakari.

After B2, White will usually play a pincer on the top to attack Black. Black can run away, or sacrifice black+circle and B2 to get a position on the left.
