Speculative invasion

Paths: <= Bad Habits =>   ·   <= Mistake =>
    Keywords: EndGame

To invade the opponent's territory quite near the end of the game, with no particular plan, but with the hope that the invasion works or that the opponent makes a mistake.

possible example  

emeraldemon: This sequence came from a game I just played on KGS. The plays at W1 and W7 didn't accomplish anything and since B2 and B8 would have to be played eventually anyway, they lost points. If W1 had been at B2 it could have made a reasonable reduction. Black won this game by 4.5, so that may very well have been the losing sequence.
