I last touched this page 16 years ago... after I remembered my password "War Eagle last edited by WarEagle on December 22, 2003 - 04:31"

Just another go student.

I live in North Alabama, and would be interested in finding local players. Around 12k on KGS.

Just thinking of the question from AnglePlayAfterDiagonalAttachment [1] Why is W5 bad? Please show an example.

Double hane White's Bad shape?  

In this diagram the marked white stone is the W5 referred to by the original question.

White's bad shape?  

yoyoma - I think B2 is bad. Black has declared outside influence to be important when he played the marked stone. Black should follow up by playing B2 at W5. Black has already decided he is willing to allow White to cut at a, in which case Black kills the white stones to the left and White gets a ponuki to the right.

Black continues to play for influence towards the center.  
White's bad shape? Black has 2 cutting points
