Five And Four Stone Fuseki
Imagist: In four stone games, I like to play the high wedge because it allows me to play the same joseki twice in sente, taking up a strong position on the right.
Imagist: If black plays this way, I usually play like this.
Bill: Besides, Black has better play.
Alex: Going by the philosophy that White's goal in handicap games is to seek complications, I aim for the same position, but in a way that leads to a a more complicated fight if White resists:
Black will usually answer with , at which point I make a second approach. If White answers submissvely with a, I can take b, while if she pincers, I will make a double kakari at a, which tends to muddy (or bloody!) the waters very early on.
