Discussion about Q16,R14,O16,Q10,K17

At position Q16,R14,O16,Q10,K17, @S_Alexander started the conversation:

N16 is a fun move for white to try here.

( FYI @aesalon )

I looked on Waltheri local search: it comes up six times from 1959 to 2015, the most open-board case being http://ps.waltheri.net/database/game/11895/. It doesn’t seem to be a joseki so I would tend to think it shouldn’t be added unless it’s known as a common amateur trick move or overplay. If we add every single move then you end up with a big clutter like Josekipedia.


It is in trick play and handicap books so it might be added but yeah, not a priority (in my eyes) for those reasons.
