Sacrifice a single stone on the second line 2

    Keywords: Shape, Tactics
yk 4d* - kishiko 4d*  

This is game 82 from the Go Teaching Ladder.

Here W3 is a typical device to do something for a corner shut in by a double approach. (Cf. 3-6 point pincers.)


Here B1 was a little unreasonable. White should have played W6 at B7, to avoid being shut in.


Black can play more simply here for influence, up to the table shape B7.
