Kobarensei, my own beautiful creation ^___^

…But seriously speaking, my openings are nowdays really boring :c
As black i i prefer dual / “rotating” 3-4’s and then approaching on the largest side.
As white i usually play my first move on 3-4 facing the diag corner from b’s stone hoping for a cross-opening, then play 4-4 in the last empty corner.
And regardless which colour i am, after those 2-3 moves i just try to find the biggest moves.


:expressionless:Koba + rensei

It also depends on how the other player opens and whether you’re white or black.


It has a sensei’s page, where it’s called Jabberwocks or slanty-ren-sei. But that’s indeed a fun opening, I’ve played it a couple of times :slight_smile:


this is one of my favorite opening

Did you mean the lower left stone to be a 3-4 stone? That’s the San Andreas Fault Fuseki which I believe you invented.
