Some bad shape ...  

Charles The reason to hesitate over playing black+circle. In some cases White might be aiming at the nose tesuji with W1. B2 is then basic instinct, but White can fight back and the escape at a is still open.

Same bad shape ...  

Bill: Through W7 White's bad shape with white+circle remains, if not worsens, since it now forms two empty triangles. The exchange, W1 - B2, doesn't look too good, either. Black may continue with B8. Black aims at Ba.

(BTW, do the four Black stones including B2 and B6 form a farmer's hat? ;-))

Small life plus  

Bill: If White lets Black live in the corner with W5, then the stretch, B8, is simple and strong. White is weak on both sides.
