Sleeve Of God

    Keywords: Humour

This elegant tesuji involves wearing baggy sleeves to gain an advantage while playing a stone, and is a particular variation of StoneMovingTesuji?. Consider:

B2 elsewhere, Sleeve of God  

The variation of a also works, as does sweeping the piece from the board entirely.

Finish up the tesuji (3 elsewhere)  

It may be advisable to allow some play between the tesuji of B2 and the finish-up of B4.

The correct japanese term for this seems to be "kami no hirosode".

JohnMoser: The correct response to this play is to either punch the person in the head in recompense or request they commit harakiri to restore their honor. In either case you are even; leave the stone in its new location.
