Do Not Peep At Cutting Points

    Keywords: Proverb
Bad peep  

W1 peeps at the cutting point, at which B2 happily connects. A typical thank you move, since White has not accomplished anything while in return Black's major aji has disappeared.

White should cut  

White should cut at W1 in this diagram. Now the group at the bottom does not have a base and is under attack; and white+circle can cause trouble later in the game.

Compare the two diagrams. This one is obviously better for White.
