Bill: The bent, along with these two plays, were some of the first examples of good shape in the first shape book I read many years ago.
They seem at least as good as the good shapes mentioned on the parent page. Maybe they were considered too elementary.
eggsyntax? Could someone explain how counter-hane and double hane could both be good shapes, when counter-hane sets the opponent up to do double hane? I'm very confused by that. Thanks!
