Trick play example 3

  Difficulty: Advanced   Keywords: Joseki
Black sets up the trick play  

With B3 Black sets up a trick play. With W6 White falls for it - he should have played at a instead.

Bob McGuigan: I think W4 may be the first mistake by White. When B3 is present it is usually better for White to play at the 3-3 point instead of W4.

White is tricked  

This is joseki, but . . .

White is tricked, continued  

. . . because of black+circle Black can fence in the marked white stones instead of making the joseki move at a.

Harleqin: I wouldn't call this a trick play (hamete), since this B3 (first diagram) is a good move. A trick play is a bad move where it is a bit difficult to find the counter. edit: I just found the discussion page, where someone already raised this objection. I'd support renaming this page to joseki mistake. You may delete this comment afterwards, of course.
