Standard Opening 2/review with AI

Standard opening 2  

In the orthodox fuseki when B1 approaches from the enclosure side, W2 can come as close as W2 and then B3 is played for gaining momentum by sacrifice.

Including B5 at a there are 4 such games in Waltheri, all from the 90s.

KataGo thinks that (when B5 high at a) the game is going well for Black, having caught up a point or so with respect to the start.

However, the last two moves are a mistake according to KataGo.


Having already played in the upper right, KataGo prefers Black playing in the undeveloped corners, rather than the standard move.


W1 is recommended here. Black can ignore, says KataGo, but the natural move of B2 is not bad.

White shouldn't worry about the push and cut of B4 and B6. W9 is the countermeasure.
