You've all heard of the Great Wall fuseki I'm sure, but have you heard of the Black Hole, or the Milky Way or Orion's Belt?

Ohashi Hirofumi 6p (大橋拓文) has a YouTube video that introduces several new openings, The Black Hole (ブラックホール) on all four 7-7 points, The Milky Way (天の川), and Orion's belt (オリオン座).

"Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way..."

To keep the stellar theme running, it may be worth a word or two :lol: to add that in the Ohashi video the lady is Osawa Maya, a star of the amateur world. She is sister of pro Osawa Narumi and when she won the 44th Women's Amateur Honinbo in 2002, they set a record as the first sisters to be "ama queens" (Narumi won in 1997).

That Black Hole was apparently played by Pierre Colmez 5d ama. against Guo Juan 5p years ago, according to a comment on the Fuseki Experiments page on SL.

She played in the World Mind Sports Games 2012 in Lille and won the silver medal in the women's individual. In the semifinal she beat the UK's Vanessa Wong, but Vanessa was leading for quite a lot of the game but missed an important exchange in the endgame.
