Shape Problem 4 Connection

    Keywords: Shape, Problem
Which connection?  

Really, this is a no-brainer.

Wrong connection  

This is devastating for Black.

Right way  

Black may be worried about White's thrust at W2. (In fact, if White does not play it, why did he make the previous plays in the original diagram?) But how bad is it?

First cut, shibori  

W5 fills at B2.

White has horrible shape.

Second cut  

This is not much better. Now what can White do?
