White 4 is an enclosure

  Difficulty: Advanced   Keywords: Opening

A rare idea for opening the game is for White to play W2 and W4 as a corner enclosure, thus allowing Black three corners. It was tried as an experiment by Kubomatsu, and probably on a few other occasions by strong players.

Gu Li made a 3563 enclosure with W2 and W4 in a game 2001-09-14.

Naganuma Makoto -Takahashi Toshimitsu  

In this game between Naganuma Makoto and Takahashi Toshimitsu, the latter played W2 and W4 as an enclosure. White lost the game, not that there is any statistical relevance to that.
