ErasureOrInvasion/Pro play 2

Sub-page of ErasureOrInvasion
Black to play  

This example comes from Now I Would Play This Way: Go Seigen looks back at 18 memorable games (Go Seigen: Omoide no 18 Kyoku: Ima Nara Ko Utsu), game 14. Go Seigen played Black against Onoda.

Black erasure  

Go Seigen says that an invasion at B3 is possible, but then White would reply at a to seal Black in. Since the outside would become quite White, Go Seigen does not approve.

Bob McGuigan: I thought about attaching at W4, myself, but presumably that gives too much white thickness toward the center. The attachment at B1 would be intended to make the fighting spill over into white's area on the lower left.

Bill: Yes, that's what happened in the game. In the fighting that ensued Black made a significant encroachment into White's lower left moyo.
