Opposing komoku example / Discussion

Bill: Facing komoku as a fuseki pattern typically refers to the case where the same player has played both komoku. What is shown here, so far, is the problematic case where different players have played the facing komoku -- which is avoided, as a rule. I think sometimes you will see Black make the problematic play to invite a kakari and let him take the last open corner.

tderz: Thanks, I did not know that. I will ask for a title change then (because I do not know how to that).

Bill: Bueno! Later (on a new facing komoku page) I will put up an example or two where Black has both komoku. :-)

Dave Made Mukai Komoku a separate page to explain difference. Opposers and Facers take it from here. :-)

Bill: Thanks, Dave! :-) I had never heard the kenka komoku term.

Dave: This is per my copy of Yoogo Shojiten (Small Dictionary of Go Terminology?), 1983 edition.

Since becoming aware of this term (through the dictionary), I have now heard it used twice in television commentaries on Japanese TV, once by Oya Koichi and once by Ishikura Noboru.
