Sente-getting tesuji

The following is a tesuji from a game, allowing to take sente. See getting sente for a general treatment.


W3 has the feel of a sente-getting tesuji. (This is from a game Takagawa Kaku-Nabeshima Ichiro 1927-12-13.)

Is it right to say that Black had sente at the start of the sequence? Well, the black+circle stone was played as a pincer on white+circle, at a time when Black did have sente in the game as a whole.


Now Black connects in order to have some shape on the right.

White plays the staircase with W2 and W4, and duly connects solidly with W6. This takes sente again, and White can attack with W8.

It was a two-stone handicap game; White's play is quite typical.
