Goose tesuji

    Keywords: Online Go

Goose tesuji is a term invented by Go teacher Shawn Ray (Clossius). A goose tesuji is either

1. An endgame technique: a move on the outside of the opponent's territory that asks him to play a move inside it, due to threatening to exploit a weakness.

2. The actual exploitation of that defect, after the opponent having refused to defend.

W1 and W3 are goose tesuji  

The term originated in a game that Shawn was playing on (probably) Fox. After he had played a move like W3, some kind of a dispute had occurred, and his opponent had started to talk in Chinese to a moderator.

Curious, Shawn put one of the Chinese sentences into Google Translate, which gave it in English as Up my goose I'm finishing the yose!
