Honte Lib 2

    Keywords: Shape

In reply to the white stone white+circle, B1 would be considered honte here (given as such in a book by Koyama Yasuo).

Also seen  

In this case the evidence from pro games is mixed. B1, normally followed by B3 to avoid being shut in, is also commonly seen.

Charles Matthews

HolIgor: Honte is not a must. There is a price for leaving a weakness behind but if the gain elsewhere is large enough then a player can go for it. And as the game developes the opponent may lose the opportunity to use your weakness.
