Heavy Examples

    Keywords: Go term

Examples of the term, heavy.

Example 1

White is heavy  

This example is from Go Seigen: 21st Century Go, vol. 1, p. 132. Go Seigen's comment: "The osae of W1 is really heavy."

Example 2

The 4-4 point diagonal attachment joseki is common in handicap games. B2 forces W3, which makes the white group heavy. If black+circle wasn't there, B2 would be a mistake. White would soon play an extension at or near black+circle and the group would be strong instead of heavy.
