I replayed so many "classical" games that I almost always start with a double Komoku.
General game plan for the first moves is getting one Shimari and then it depends on what White does.

I like playing against the Chinese more than I do the Orthodox, so I was going to take the lower right 4-4. But then I thought "I always seem to play Chinese openings in L19 Malkovich Games", so I played something off the wall instead. I chose this particular 3-5 because I'm aiming at the following

Double Komoku as explained, maybe he approaches right away at the top right. I will most likely take the open corner then because Go Seigen says the open corner is always bigger =D

Okay, taking my Shimari. Don't know if it has more relevance here because of the marked White stone. But I must say I feel more comfortable now to play 'a' in the future because I don't need to worry about a framework at the top.

I experimented with 'b' (high Shimari) a bit but I feel with White's marked stone I better stick to the low Shimari. I'm also more familiar with the low one ^^

I expect White to play 'c' now and I will attach underneath with 'd'. Then we will see.

If White plays 'a' or some freak Shimari (: D), I will take my second Shimari at 'd'.

'e' is also a nice alterantive. I'm pondering whether to pincer directly or to defend the corner and then playing a checking extension. Guess the latter. I like territory.

Iirc, some [popular and old] book says when the shimari is low, you can approach low or high, if the shimari is high you must approach hi.

I guess pincer cum extension is a perfectly viable move here. Serves multiple purposes, works with my stones... no need to overthink.

I would try to settle my stone here as White, playing either 'a' or 'b'. If he plays 'b' I might think about changing directions with a counter-atari (sequence 'b', 'c', 'a', 'd', 'e') Could be bad, though, with :w4: in place. I will look into it the resulting shapes before I decide.

If he jumps, I most likely jump along.

The 3-space pincer feels a bit soft to me (allowing :white: (x) ).
I'd consider a 2-space pincer instead, like :black: (y),
or maybe a 1-space high, like (z) :

[go]$$Bc Joseki is also (only?) counter-pincer at 'a' and extending to 'b', but I like to stay a little farther away from Black's thickness

This would also be a very nice idea for White.
Positional judgement is not my forte so I would be hard pressed to find the right timing to kill the Aji in my corner. Furthermore White takes Sente to enclose his corner. How do I enter his side then?

'a' seems simplest. I don't like 'b' because of 'c', which works quite well with the marked stone, I think. So when I play 'a' then...

...something like that could follow.
:w20: seems pretty much Sente against my group but it also leave behind a supoptimal corner shape, I feel. Maybe exchanging 'a' for 'b' is better instead. But :w20: definitely makes me feel more uncomfortable ^^ (I don't know the right move, to defend my group.)
I don't think it would be good to play :w18: low at 'c'. The bottom is too flat then, makes the marked stone look oddly placed.

Furthermore, if it's going like this then White has Sente again. Black feels a tad passive and White will most likely get the last big move in the opening (guess around 'd' and then checking/extending on top and using/killing the Aji in my corner seem to be Miai). I don't like that ^^

If White plays this Joseki in the bottom right, I have to ponder about a different move then 'a', I think.

Hm, when I get Sente after White lived in the corner is :b25: a good game plan? Hmm... There's a lot of space for White ^^

I guess I really want to play another line : )

Do you normally play 6 low? I usually play high here.


To be honest, no, but I was having a go at that new fuseki testing site thing that was posted on here recently, and it suggested it as playable, so I thought I'd play it and see what happened :)

Decisions decisions, will try to spend a bit more time thinking about my Malkovich this time!

So, initial thoughts:

"a" is a nice point to have to get some form of edge stability, but I strongly dislike the fact White can kick it in the corner and leave it feeling clumpy and unhappy. Almost definitely not playing this ... yet

"b" Fairly standard, quick and easy to settle the stone fairly well, and quite tempting.

"c" My 4-4 in the lower left quite likes the idea of switching sides, and the loose nature of Black's pincer makes me suspect it will be hard for Black to cleanly and quickly deal with :w6: even given an extra move there. So this is probably leading as an idea, but I ought to think about some continuations first.

Ok, I've gone for my switch. I deliberated about low or high for some time, even after I'd decided on the switch, and the reason being is that I want my extension to be as sente as possible:

I simply wasn't convinced that this was good enough - with :w8: low, Black can run, or play "a" or "b" in the above diagram, and it's all fairly urgent. Playing high makes me suspect that "c" lets Black settle in yet another way, and I'm less keen on it. It's possible I'll get all this higher outside thickness that I can put to good use, and that my judgement is off here, I just like the idea of Black sweating a bit more about making sure he deals with :w6:

The kosumi (a) seems a very nice point for B.
Attaching at (b) also looks OK for B… ?

Okay, I must say I would have played the same in this situation. Looks like the most fun.
I guess this strategy a bit "whole-boardy".

Anyway, I'm not one that knows too many Joseki, so I play :b9: because it looks again like a sound move. Dividing White's stones and making Miai where to attack.

I'm eager to see what White does with his Sente. I still think it will be an enclosure, which then leaves me with the decision how to enter the left ^^

b is a bit strange. By contacting the weak stone you help it get stronger.
