I lost a coin flip to myself, so I'll take white. I would prefer that we can use joseki dictionaries, databases, etc if we want to.

Sure, don't mind. There's no conceivable way to stop you from doing it either way, so I'm fine with it.

Ah, Go.

Feels nice to come back to it after some time.

I think my experiences with other competitive games and hobbies have given me a bit of insight into how to play and get better, and I'm probably going to detail some of these things as the game progresses.

So this opening. I could probably tell you that the 4-4 point doesn't emphasize the corner as much as, say the 3-4 point, or that the joseki that result from this move are simpler...

But really people rarely put that much thought into their first move unless they have a prepared opening, which I don't right now.

I'm comfortable with the 4-4 point. And there's a dot on the board. It's gotta be a good move, right? The creator of the board put a dot there.

It's a bit early to make any real calls. Waiting to see what fuseki Violence chooses. I keep studying the two space high pincer on dailyjoseki, it would be nice to have an opportunity to play that (how many players has this idea killed).

His 3-4 point faces this direction, so I played in that corner. I like having a 3-4 point face my 4-4, so I played here.

I like high approach. I'm also more familiar with the variations of most patterns here.

In a tournament game many years ago I played this and got a good result (anecdotal evidence). I guess it's the corollary of not approaching low.

Black should have to secure this group and hopefully I can still approach top left.

Is this cool? You should be move number 12, I forgot how to change that in the code.

So you know why this move is rare?

It's not because it's complex, but it's because people tend to follow a direction of play that dissuades people from playing stuff like this. When you see this move, it usually means something's gone wrong with your directional plans.

But there are people who play it anyways, and there are legitimate board setups for it, they're just in the minority.

I didn't want to do this because I felt like 5 was a bit too close to the upper right, and I don't like the aji at the marked stone.

This aji feels more managable to me, because if he plays the marked stone, I can attach on top and he can't connect under like he would if I made a tiger's mouth.

The reasoning here is really simplistic, but I mean, you have to make decisions somehow.

Is this cool? You should be move number 12, I forgot how to change that in the code.


You can only have 10 numbered moves on the board, which are represented in the code by 1-9 and then 0. To pick which number the 1 in the code represents, add m## to the string at the top of the diagram code, like so:

Edit: As a caveat, you can only have 2-digit numbers on the board, so after 99 it will go to 00 and then loop back to 1.

The lower left is mostly resolved. There are appoach moves in the two upper corners, or a shimari in the lower right.
There are also three sides to consider.

Following Yilun Yang's ranking of important moves ( From his 'Fundamental Principles of Go' ) in which he says that a shimari or an approach to a 3-4 are more important than an approach to a 4-4, the upper right is the least important of the three corners.

The sides are, to Yang, even lower in rank.

To it is a choice between the upper left and lower right. The upper side is the largest of the available sides, so I would go for the upper left.

And :w12: or thereabouts is natural to interrupt black's framework development. I imagine Violence will play the usual pincer since this looks lacklustre for black:

How did you decide on the 2-space approach vs either of the 1-space approaches?

I want to stifle black's framework potential and settle easily, so distant low. Black wants precisely not that, but the distant approach makes his resistance a compromise from black's perspective.

For that reason, I didn't lengthily consider one space/knights approaches.

Could you expand on this a little bit? I'm curious what line is the trick, and what's the actual refutation.

I'd be inclined to play D17 or E17 as white, but I'm having trouble evaluating the following lines.

e17 is only move. d17 just dies and game over. The question is does white then obediently capture the stone or can he resist with extend in the corner or outside turn. There's no clear refutation that I know, a pro once asked me for advice how to answer it!
