After J5 and the slide, he is safe. :sad: Playing the 3-3 does not threaten to kill...

I've skipped a lot of branches here - maybe including some terribly obvious one that settles the whole issue - but I'm not pretending to have made an exhaustive analysis. I'm just showing the complexities that arise if white tenukis too soon.

I suspect that Drmwc is looking at much the same thing, and that is why he is delaying his move.

The attachment leaves me too weak, so I think this is forced.

To all: I may need a day or two to think about this.

To observers:
As mentioned earlier, I'm not certain if the 3-3 is a threat to kill. I have to figure out if it is.
If it is, I'll play it. If not, I'll play around C9/D10.

Although, I have been looking at some interesting ideas of playing some forcing moves on the lower side that he has to answer in a submissive manner while he is still weak, but that he could answer in a more assertive manner later if I were to delay them until he is stronger.

One example of this is playing H2 now if he cannot respond with J2. ( I sure would like to see him forced to respond to H2 with a connecting move on the third rank. Not only would this limit his territory, but it means that I would be able to get an eye with J2 later if my J5/M5 wall got cut off and had to fend for itself. )

My desktop died on Sunday, so I took the opportunity to complete the transition to Linux.
( I no longer use a Windows machine in my busness or personal life :D )
I've spent the better part of today installing drivers. So it may be another day or so until I make a move.

As noted before, I want to make him choose the safer move.
If he descends, then 3-3 is sente to kill.

Playing awful exchanges just to make sure the 3-3 is sente is not good. As drmwc posted, he was probably going to play the push anyway:

I am not confident of living without 33. Even if I can live, without it any aji against the the B group will disappear and the game will be quite territorial, which may favour B.


Note that even if 3-3 is not sente, then all the follow-ups are which lets black get thick and points in sente so white has no chance to harass the black corner/wall.

So now we will get this result:

32 for 33 is clearly rubbish.

I didn't actually think of ignoring it as it's a bad exchange for black. But your sequence leaves white too thin:

And if 41 clamps black connects in sente and then saves the corner stone and white squirms/dies.

The 3-3 seemed good enough. Black doesn't need to be trying to attack like this; and it's not an effective attack because White easily dodges by sliding in to take the big 3-3 point. After Black cuts off the right stones White has actually gained forcing moves in this area. Also, noticing White's heavy investment of influence on the right, it's more likely that Black could have used the 3-3 point to better counter White's influence later in the game.

Speaking from a different perspective, the move has widened the game for White, rather than narrowed it.

Probably 33 for 34 is a good exchange for white: in terms of territory it is, but it does make black's shape outside thicker so I'm not 100% sure.... Also given drmwc's style I don't expect him to sacrifice the 2 stones.

Curious move. It appears to lose a few points, so I will grab the money.

Maybe Joaz is after a squeeze:

After this, B ataris at a and shuts white in. It's not necessarily bad for white - a weakish group lives with 15-20 points, and a hole at b appears. However, I can side-step the issue:

6 as above avoids the squeeze.

Playing at the 3-3 may well lead to an exchange. This line looks boring for white. Black gets some territory on the side, and more importantly elimates a large source of bad aji/potential weak group. The game will become quite territorial without much attacking. So I prefer to avoid this.

( For beginners. )

This kind of exchange, :b32: - :w33: — if it works, if B kills W, then it's good.
But if it doesn't, then it's just basic broken shape for B,
and Uberdude already covered the eww-ness.

B has an interesting strategy of trying to play quickly whilst giving up bits and bobs. I think it loses some points - the 32/33 exchange is clearly bad.

However, The move played is clearly sente e.g.

But this leave me very thin - black at a next may work immediately. So I've decided to play solidly and bide my time. If Joaz next takes the 3-3, my decision is:

I have the choice of two points - I can tenuki the 3-3 due to the 2-3 excchange, although it leaves me thin and B at 7 may be sente.
