Takemiya Masaki kills the 3-3 point invasion

Takemiya Masaki(W) vs Okada Shinichiro  

We have had no pro example of actually killing a 3-3 invasion on SL...

I omitted the forcing sequence in the lower right center in between... After W9 Black has at best an L-shaped group... now he tries to use the aji to break into white area but fails. White win by resign.

Am I right to assume that Mr. Takemiya had read this out when answering the 3-3 invasion, but Mr. Okada had not when he played it?

Timm: I don't think it's possible to ancitipate B10 but I'm just 5k and maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, the sequence in the corner was just probing.

tapir: Imo this is a witty misuse of terminology. A probe implies you have a good & reasonable line of play for each of the possible replies. We are probably all guilty of this when it comes to overuse of terms like aji, but here probe seems clearly misplaced to me.
