Discussion about Q16,pass,R14

At position Q16,pass,R14, @aesalon started the conversation:

These moves are so situational, especially moves such as Q17 and R17. They are interesting and relevant, but due to their rarity, getting sources on what is ideal or good is difficult. How to handle?

( FYI @Eugene )

My thought is that after one “GOOD [MOVE]: … A Good move cannot be part of a joseki.”, you’re already into the realm of situational. From there, I’m not sure how moves that are played several times in recent pro games can be less than Ideal, except for the cases where something credible deems them mistakes after the fact.

Some of those doubted variations from Q17 could be looked at and tested for relevance.

When a move is situational, I think we should write a description that says what context is required for the move to be among the best that you can do for the local situation.
