Vision attacking play 2

    Keywords: MiddleGame, Strategy
Brennan-Bell: Black to play  

Initial position. White has just played white+circle, to invade the right side.

Attack with the cap  

Black can fight strongly in the centre. White at a to threaten the eye shape of Black's upper group isn't a serious problem for Black.

Black should cap at B1. After that W2 is the natural play to move the weak groups apart. Then B3 menaces the left side, which is White's major framework.

The actual game  

In the game Black made a direct attack on the white stone in the lower right.

The actual game, continuation  

After this diagram and the further plays Black a, White b, Black c, White d, Black's result isn't good. The key cutting stones (marked black stones) have been swallowed up in the centre. The weak points x remain, giving White a chance to reduce the territory Black has taken.
