Sacrifice a single stone on the second line 3

    Keywords: Shape, Tactics
Jef Seailles? - Pierre Colmez (B)  

This is game 3 of the 1997 French? Championship.

Considering that black+square was a deep invasion, the timing of B1 is good. It can be considered as a probe. Later in the game White's response might be different.


The way White then played was questionable: bad shape.


White would have done better with W1 here. B10 is effectively forced.

The point about shape here is that the cutting point at a is not a serious defect.
