First Line Connection  

W1 in this diagram is the first line connection. If Black attempts to sever the connection by playing at any of the circle points, his stone will get captured. Peeping at square can always be parried by connecting at circle.

See watari also known as bridge under, for more general discussion of connection underneath.
