Hane is a Japanese go term adopted by English speaking players. A hane is a move which "reaches around" one or more of the opponent's stones. The basic shape is the one formed by White 1 in this diagram. It is the natural response to a contact play.
In Japanese, "hane" becomes "bane" in certain lexical contexts, based on Japanese rules of pronunciation. Example: nidan-bane.
