slow cut

  Difficulty: Intermediate   Keywords: MiddleGame, Tactics
Slow cut  

B1 effectively cuts off the central white group fron the secure bottom. It also saves two stones. However, White's keima at W2 gives a base to the central group and influences the upper left. It's much bigger than 4 points:

Big play  

Compare to this diagram where B1 attacks while making territory. W2 would be a slow connection, giving sente to Black who can go to the next big point.
