In this position, it is black's move.

Is it reasonable, in positions like these, to attack the top white corner or the bottom white corner?

I would approach the bottom because it reduces white and expands black. But either is probably OK.

I think that it is usual to approach the bottom left corner from the bottom side. E. g., F-03. :)

Edit: Corrected.

Do you mean F3? F6 looks like an Alphago move to me ;-)

So C-14 is OK?

How about C-6?
