Thickness Example 6

    Keywords: Strategy
Black makes thickness with sente  

This example comes from The Shuko style opening, by Fujisawa Shuko. Fujisawa played Black against Sakata in the 1970 Oza match.

B1 - B5 made thickness in the bottom left corner with sente. Then B7 took a large point on the right side.


The wedge at B1 is usual, but allows White to get the big point at W6.


Sakata thought Fujisawa would play the turn at B1 and stake out the left side. But the left side has bad aji, and Fujisawa felt that the bottom was too good for White after W2.
