Honte Lib 6

Honte ( W6 )  

This example comes from 21st Century Go, vol. 3, pp. 238 - 9, by Go Seigen.

W2 - W4 protect the corner in response to Black's double kakari. In the game White played W6 at B7. Go Seigen likes the honte of W6. It looks like White has made an extra play in the corner, but White can continue with no insecurity. If Black continues with B7, W8 pushes through and looks at a and b.

Thick overall  

In the game Black played B2 at B8. Go Seigen recommends settling the top left corner first with B2 - W7. After B10 Black is thick overall. White has difficulty finding a place to play.
