Vision attacking play 3
Black attacked White directly, with the eye-stealing play .
There are two things wrong with this.
- It is a bit too loose.
- No advantage in direction of play.
The first point means that Black will have to spend time defending this stone, later. White at a is an obvious weakness at the moment.
The second point: as long as White's group doesn't die, how will Black take profit from this attack? There is no clear territory to be made.
here is an attack from a better direction of play.
Black can be quite happy with the development in this diagram. After the lower black group cannot be considered as seriously weak; while is clearly a good way to take profit while attacking.
