Side Attachment


Chinese: -
Japanese: 横ツケ (yokotsuke)
Korean: -

Side Attachment is a standard tesuji.

Side Attachment  

W1 is the Side attachment tesuji used in this case to make shape for the white stones on the side. (From problem 27 in Five Hundred and One Tesuji Problems.)

It is most effective, as in this example, when the opponent cannot answer directly with a hane or stretch as he would like, due to a double threat. Here, Black does not want to allow White a, so answers at B2, which allows White to be the first to hane with W3.
W1, trading the white+circle stone for the black+circle stone, lets White settle comfortably here, neatly sidestepping the fight Black was hoping for when he cut with black+square.
