Discussion about Q16,R14,pass,O16,O15

At position Q16,R14,pass,O16,O15, @Counting Zenist started the conversation:

R17 had been played many times in professional games as well, normally with white winning, and black responded with either R16 or N16 depend on the direction.

And another white response is N16, and it looks not good for white, but the results from recorded professional games showed it is 50/50.

@Eugene the code that auto posts comments here in the forum doesn’t handle tagging names with spaces in them very well (spaces should be converted to _ within the forums), the tags above should all be @Counting_Zenist

Your search is narrow and includes a lot of pincer variations or with added white stones on the sides. It also branches so much that there aren’t variations that have more than 3 or maybe 4 games.

Never realize that all the comments from joseki page will be auto posts on the forum as well.

This is a neat feature…

They are conditional I agree, and pro games tried these variations were mostly from recent years. They haven’t been well-explored I suppose.
