Large Knights Extension From Third Line


This situation arose in a recent game of mine. It appears that it canít be cut. I think it only works when extending from a living group and when your opponent's surrounding stones do not overhang or surround your group from the side. If this move already has a page, please let me know.

Large Knight's Extension From Third Line  

HolIgor: There are situations where this is good for black, certainly. But, black is not short of other good continuations like hane, nobi or one or two space jumps on the third line depending on the surroundings.
