Dropping Back With ADiagonal Play/ Discussion

Dropping back one line  

Tas: I dont get it. Do you mean this:

Not dropping back one line  

Instead of this?

Aren't there two cutting points in both? Okay, I see that the latter is definitely weaker, but I don't see fewer cutting points.

Charles, Well, I have marked them with circles.

Tas: c in the first diagram is definitely a cutting point?

Charles That would not be called a cutting point. To cut a diagonal connection requires two plays, not just one (normally). The page on atekomi may help.

Tas: Of course, I didn't notice that white was missing a stone there.
