Difficulty: Beginner   Keywords: Humour

CharlesMatthews: This side formation is good for making territory, using just three stones.

nature: no, i don't think it's a good formation. it's very thin and have lots of bad aji.

Masamune: nature, you're speaking of rather advanced concepts. Could you maybe provide some examples? Why is this page under 'humour'? Confusing entry!

(Sebastian:) That's because an experienced editor (velobici) didn't take it seriously. As he wrote "also humour....is this "term" used anywhere else ?". To answer your request for examples, I just searched SmartGo's collection, and out of thousands of games, there's only one in which this formation occurs in isolation: Honinbo Genjo vs Yasui Chitoku, played 1790. That game did not end well for Genjo, who played the tent in move 82.

Move 82. Next, Black tenukis at a.  
Some intermediate moves. Moves B1 through B5 were moves 91 through 95 in actual game. B7 and B9 were 127 and 129, respectively.  
This is what became of the formation after move 209. White has to cover at a in gote.
