Cut and connect

  Difficulty: Introductory   Keywords: Opening, MiddleGame, Strategy

The basic principle in Go is to cut and connect. It is the translation to Go of the military or political strategy of Divide and conquer. It applies especially to the Middle Game, which is the stage in Go where groups and positions are seeking development and stability. It is already present in the Opening, where strongholds for development are created.

A very good motivation of the principle can be found at:
