Getting ahead with a one-point jump

    Keywords: Shape, Tactics

One-space jump  

When Black is not strong in this part of the board, his running group is most probably under attack. The basic move for defense is a one-point jump. Thus getting ahead with a one-point jump can be recommended.

Another case:

Jump an extra line  

In this nadare variation, W4 (rather than a) tries to get well ahead of Black.

Better influence  

This continuation is nearly forced. White has better influence than would be gained with White a in the previous diagram, and Black cannot yet cut at b.
